Cavaliers, Courage, and Coffee -- When Mosby Owned the Night

Tonight, our family attended an interpretive lantern-light tour of the life during the Civil War in the Mosby Heritage Area (just south of our home in Atoka, Virginia). This was a captivating tour, with stories told by actors in period costumes. We learned about the guerrilla warfare of the Mosby Rangers, and how devastating the war was to people, civilian and soldier alike, on both sides of the battlefield.

The event was presented by the Gray Ghost Interpretive Group and sponsored by the Mosby Heritage Area Association. If you're ever in town, this is an event any Civil War history buff would hate to miss!
