Details

By 1863 Federal cavalry had finally come into its own. However Confederate cavalry under JEB Stuart was still a deadly foe. The October 19, 1863 Battle of Buckland proved that the Southern horsemen were still capable of trouncing their blue-clad counterpart. Join local historians for a special caravan tour exploring what was later called “The Buckland Races”. Stops will include Greenwich, Buckland, New Baltimore, and more. Tour starts at Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park.
