Join a Historic Campaign on This Battles of Rappahannock Station & Kelly’s Ford Tour

Take a comprehensive battlefield tour of the battle of Rappahannock Station & Kelly’s Ford; November 7, 1863.

Your private battlefield tour will start at the Remington, #313 Park & Ride lot, where you will meet your own battlefield guide. Receive a tour introduction where the story picks up after the battle of Gettysburg.

Part of the Forgotten Fall of 1863, Union General George Meade is compelled to act and launched his first major offensive after the battle of Gettysburg.

Follow the Army of the Potomac as they try to get at Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia behind the Rappahannock River in Culpeper County. Fighting will erupt along the tracks of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad.

Hear about a rare twilight assault that goes into the night.

The tour will visit seldom visited sites on American Battlefield Trust and County property.

We’ll hear about battlefield innovation and theatrics as Meade and Lee face off once again.

As a bonus, the tour will also cover the previous actions at Kelly’s Ford on March 17, 1863.

This private battlefield tour pairs nicely with the battle of Brandy Station which preceded this battle and the battle of Mine Run.
