Join us Saturday and Sunday for the Battle of Osborne’s Landing!

Visit Revolutionary War re-enactors in their American and British encampments as they re-create the 1781 Battle at Osborne’s Landing where Major General William Phillips ordered British forces, which included Benedict Arnold, to attack the supplies of the Virginia State Navy and Virginia Militia. During this attack, most of the Virginia State Navy fleet was destroyed.
