The 1864 Battle of New Market gives locals a chance to witness American history!

Residents and visitors to Southern California are invited to witness a live Civil War battle reenactment in Cherry Valley, and to spend a day experiencing life in 1864 while supporting Wounded Warrior Project.  Families, friends, school groups and scouts are welcome to reserve their place to witness the artillery, cavalry, and infantry in action! The one-day event includes sutlery and chances to learn about civilian life in the mid-19th century, as well as music and theatre to entertain all ages.

The Civil War event on May 2nd is a rare opportunity to see American history in action while honoring our wounded champions and their families.  The sights, sounds, and smells of the battlefield and encampment allow the “War Between the States” to come to life for all who attend.  The unique experience can help to inspire gratitude in young citizens as they consider the sacrifices made by soldiers and their families throughout history.

As an expression of the gratitude felt by the reenactment participants (both Blue and Gray) toward our wounded veterans, Army of the West and Providential Heritage Academy will support the Wounded Warrior Project through the Battle of New Market reenactment event. Wounded Warrior Project is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services, and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001.

The Battle of New Market Civil War reenactment takes place on Saturday, May 2nd 2015 at Mile High Ranch in scenic Cherry Valley (12929 Mile High Road, Cherry Valley, CA 92223).  Reservations are required for this special one-day event, and tickets are available by calling (909) 790-8463. Event information is available at or by calling (909) 790-TIME.  The event begins at 10:00 AM and concludes at 5:00 PM.  Parking is free.
