Long before the military camped along the banks of the Rappahannock and the town of Fredericksburg became a battleground, the civilian population was peacefully going about their lives. We have a unique opportunity to portray of the lives of these civilians and their experience during history.
My name is Kimberlee Bruce and I am the Civilian Living History program Coordinator for “Fire on the Rappahannock”. We are looking for men, women and children that are willing to portray all social classes from the very rich to the very poor, including free persons of color and slaves from Stafford and Spotsylvania Counties and the town of Fredericksburg. We are still coordinating roles and sites for civilians within the town. If you have particular period skills or an impression please let us know because that information may give us ideas for a particular setting for your participation. See the below link regarding the civilian clothing standards for this event.
