Look To Christmas Past at Sully

Look To Christmas Past at Sully

From Fairfax County:

At Sully Historic Site in Chantilly, on December 17, 2011 travel back to 1862. During that evening, the yard will be the scene of an encampment of Confederate soldiers while inside residents prepare to celebrate Christmas.

Following their victory at the first Battle of Manassas in July, Chantilly was in the hands of the Confederate army. But, like soldiers today, even the holidays failed to provide a complete respite from the realities of combat. Although battles were rare during the winters of the Civil War, soldiers of both armies remained in their camps.
