Experience an unforgettable Revolutionary War Reenactment at Battle of Great Bridge

This two-day event is held at Battlefield Park South, which is near the original site of the Battle of Great Bridge. The Battle of Great Bridge took place on December 9, 1775. A wreath-laying ceremony is held each year on Saturday at 11 am, presented by the Daughters and Sons of the American Revolution. The ceremony begins at the Great Bridge Battlefield & Waterways History Museum at Battlefield Park and ends with a walk to the Monument dedicated by the Daughters of the American Revolution to commemorate the Patriot soldiers who fought for our freedom.

Step back in time with us and experience life as it was during this weekend of commemorative events. There are  re-enactments of the Battle of Great Bridge on both days, Revolutionary War encampments, demonstrations, character portrayals, camp life, historical displays and lectures, skilled artisans demonstrating early American trades, and children's crafts and activities.
