September 14

Virginia in the Spanish-American War at Rippon Lodge 

11 a.m. to 4 p.m., $5 per person, children under 6 are free.

Considered to be a forgotten war, the Spanish-American War began in 1898 after the USS Maine was destroyed in the harbor of Havana, Cuba. It was a war that many at first did not comprehend or want, however the tide soon turned and many regiments in Virginia were soon preparing to fight.

Explore the history of the Spanish-American War at Rippon Lodge Historic Site.  Speak with living history interpreters about the war, what the soldiers encountered, and see artifacts of the era.  Tours of the historic lodge and period games will be available.

Rippon Lodge Historic Site, 15520 Blackburn Road, Woodbridge, VA 22192, 703-499-9812.
