From Forests to Fields at Pamplin Historical Park & The National Museum of the Civil War Soldier

Sunday, July 21

Join us as we explore the mid-19th century efforts to use wood in civilian products and military construction on July 20-21, 2019 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. Programs will include several 30-minute woodworking demonstrations at both the Tudor Hall Plantation and the Military Encampment areas. These programs will occur multiple times daily, so that visitors will have several opportunities to view them regardless of when they arrive. A specially tailored Tudor Hall Plantation walking tour titled “From Forests to Fields” will be offered at 11:00-11:45 am, and again from 2:00-2:45 pm. We will also offer the Breakthrough Battlefield Tour twice during the day, from 1:00-1:45 pm, and again from 3:00-3:45 pm. Additional emphasis will be placed on comparing and contrasting today’s battlefield landscape to that of period photographs that vividly illustrate the denuded terrain.
