The Reenactment of the Battle of Lewisburg gives us a wonderful opportunity to explore our past and learn from our history.  Special events will educate visitors about our Civil War History and help us to arrive at a better understanding of the causes and results of the War Between the States.

Our goal for the future is to introduce our young people to a period in our nation’s history that sometimes seems like a mystery to them.  Very little is taught in today’s schools about the Civil War and much of the information that children are given is not accurate.

Using reenactors and special presenters, children will be able to learn about camp life, the role of women during the war, slavery, the homefront, fashions of the time, black soldiers and much more!

Young people of all ages are invited to participate in all activities during The Battle of Lewisburg Living History and Reenactment.

There were no Indian settlements in the area though farmers and gardeners still regularly plow and till up arrowheads on their land – tokens of the hunting grounds of the Seneca, Shawnee and earlier people who are unknown to recorded history.

In 1759 the first white settlers came to the area and by 1763 there were 30 families.

In that year almost all the settlers were killed or captured by Shawnee led by Chief Cornstalk.

In 1774 in what is called the first battle of the Revolutionary War,

Andrew Lewis led an expedition against the Indians and defeated the Shawnees, Mingos, Delawares and Ottawas under Cornstalk at the Battle of Point Pleasant.

Part of Lewis’s route is now County Route 31 from Asbury to Blue Sulphur.

The Battle of Lewisburg

The Union force was the 3rd Provisional Ohio Brigade consisting of the 36th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, the 44th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and part of the 2nd (West) Virginia Cavalry. Federal troop strength was 1400 supported by two mountain howitzers.

Confederate forces under Brigadier General Henry Heth advanced on Lewisburg from the east.  Confederate forces consisted of the 22nd Virginia Infantry, the 45th Virginia Infantry, a detachment of the 8th Virginia Cavalry (dismounted) and two untrained militia battalions under Lieutenant Colonel William Finney and Major George Edgar.  Total force was 2300 men and six artillery pieces.

General Heth’s battle line was along the heights of the eastern edge of town. At 5 a.m. General Heth opened the battle with a bombardment of the Union camp. The Ohio Brigade advanced on the Confederate left and right while the Cavalry charged up the center of the Confederate line.

The units on the Confederate left were the first to collapse which exposed the center to enfilade fire.  Heth’s forces, followed by the Union troops, retreated, crossed the Greenbrier River at Caldwell and burned the bridge behind them.

The battle lasted a little over an hour.  Eighty Confederate soldiers were dead, 100 wounded and 157 taken prisoner.  Union casualties were 13 killed, 53 wounded and 7 missing.
