Join Battlefield Park staff for the 154th Anniversary of the Battle of Bristoe Station. Tour a Civil War encampment, watch artillery firing demonstrations, and tour the site of the third and final battle that took place in Prince William County. On Saturday evening, visit the battlefield for a rare treat to see over 2,000 luminary candles for every soldier who died at Bristoe Station. Living history vignettes will be located across the battlefield and self-guided tours will lead visitors to meet the men and women who made history here.
