Civil War Court Day
May 20th, 2017 10am-3pm
Historically court days served as a day where locals could meet, trade and witness court proceedings. They became hubs in the communities, attracting local businesses and travelers.
Travel back in time and witness a historic court procedure as an audience member inside the historic court house and decide for yourself if the verdict was fair or cruelly unjust. Then explore the 1855 jail and note the differences between living conditions back then and today.
Additionally, there will be an National Park Service Historian leading a guided tour around the court house area at 10am.
Performances in the court house will be at 11am and 1pm
Spotsylvania Museum at the Merchants Square will be open for more in depth information on the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse.
Admission is FREE
