Once again Philippi Wva. is hosting the reenactment of the first land battle of the Civil War. This is a nice event and a great opportunity to live out American history. The battles take place through the historic covered bridge and down the original main street. Some of the events include: the Little Soldiers Battle (Children ages 6-12), Hanger Amputation, a Civil War Ball on the courthouse lawn (weather permitting), a night skirmish at the covered bridge, and the reenactment of the first land battle of the Civil War. For more information, contact Edgar Brown of the Barbour Grays (304) 457-4265.
