This program presents Harpers Ferry as the staging area for Union General Philip Sheridan’s Shenandoah Campaign during the summer of 1864.  Members of the reactivated living history group 13th New Jersey will demonstrate union army garrison duties such as guard mount parade, searching and arresting spies and deserters, and traitors, processing prisoners of war, searching citizens, and maintaining military security in an occupied enemy town.  Costumed volunteers and staff will interpret civilian life under harsh military rule.
