Union Soldier Reenactors

Civil War Days

In the Summer of 1864, Union Army regiments under General Benjamin Butler occupied the Dutch Gap Canal and Bermuda Hundred. In the weeks following, the battle lines of both Union and Confederate troops found themselves at multiple stalemates around Aiken’s Landing and Jones Neck in the First and Second Battle of Deep Bottom.
