The Road to Gettysburg to be held at Beaver Creek

May 22, 2013
The Review

EAST LIVERPOOL - Friends of Beaver Creek State Park, Echo Dell Road, and the Army of Northern Virginia Shriver Greys are hosting The Road to Gettysburg, this Memorial Day weekend, May 25-26.

The outcome of the Battle of Banks Ford weights General R. E. Lee's difficult decision;. should he march north into Pennsylvania or defend the Confederate capital in Richmond? Birney's Division commanded by Colonel Chris Smith will represent the northern forces against the Army of Northern Virginia commanded by Colonel Tim Perry.

Little Beaver Creek strongly resembles banks along the Rappahannock River in Virginia, where this battle took place May of 1863.
