Experience an unforgettable Civil War Reenactment at Battle of Guyandotte

Each November the sights and sounds of the Civil War returns to Guyandotte. This is where history was made and with hundreds of re-enactors that will participate in America's greatest street battle, and will live again. The dirt roads are paved and the modern buildings replace the burned out frames. 

Guyandotte Civil War Days focuses its programs on this historic event in an effort to celebrate and promote the rich heritage of the area. The re-enactment of the Confederate raid on Saturday is the highlight of this event. The re-enactment is a true re-enactment based on known historical facts concerning the November 10,1861, skirmish.

The re-enactment of the Union Troops recapturing the town on Sunday will demonstrate the actual events of November 11, 1861. Re-enactments of known historic events and living history scenarios will be presented over the weekend.
