Battle of Smithfield Walking Tour

2 p.m. Saturday, September 16, 2023

Join us for a 159th anniversary recounting of “the Town of Smithfield’s most dramatic event.” This two-day engagement between Union and Confederate troops saw artillery and musket fire reverberating up and down Main Street eventually resulting in the destruction of the US Army Gunboat Smith Briggs. Meet your guide at the museum for a brief overview of this Civil War battle as well as a walk along Main Street to several sites associated with the significant events from January 30 to February 2, 1864.

Location: Isle of Wight County Museum, 103 Main Street, Smithfield, VA, 23430
