Event description

Description

In November 1861, the sleepy Southern town of Guyandotte was firmly in Union hands. But on the evening of November 10, 1861 history was made in this little river town. Confederate raiders struck quickly capturing the Union garrison and returned the village to the dominion of the Stars and Bars. The conquest however, was short lived. Soon after the Confederates left town the next morning with 110 prisoners headed for Libby Prison in Richmond, Union liberators returned and took their vengeance on what they considered a “seesech” town. By nightfall two thirds of the village had been burned to the ground.

The sights and sounds of the Civil War that rang out 158 years ago will echo through Guyandotte again on November 1-3, 2019. Hundreds of reenactors will participate in “America’s greatest street battle.”
