Herndon Chamber Sponsors Mosby's Herndon Station Raid Reenactment
The streets of historic downtown Herndon will be filled with the sound of hooves on Sunday, March 17 as legendary Colonel John Singleton Mosby and his Rangers ride into town to recreate the surprise attack on the First Vermont Cavalry stationed at the Herndon Depot.
Reenactments will take place at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. with living history portrayals one hour prior to each reenactment.
On St. Patrick’s Day 1863, troopers of the First Vermont were relaxing about the depot and a nearby sawmill. Herndon and surrounding areas were supposed to be occupied exclusively by the Union army of the United States, so when Mosby and his Rangers arrived at nearly the same time as a Union relief detachment was expected, the members of the First Vermont were taken completely by surprise, having mistaken the Rangers for federal soldiers.
Mosby’s Herndon Station Raid Reenactment offers a day of living history activities for the entire family on the original site where the raid took place in the heart of downtown Herndon. The action will be narrated in detail and books on the Civil War available for sale by vendors.
Spectators may also tour the historic Herndon Depot Museum at the end of the first Raid until 1:00 p.m. Built in 1857, the Depot features local history displays and a variety of maritime memorabilia in honor of the town’s namesake, Captain William Lewis Herndon.
The Mosby’s Herndon Station Raid Reenactment is sponsored by the Herndon Historical Society and the Herndon Chamber of Commerce. It is supported by local Herndon area businesses and the Town of Herndon.
