Raid on Martin Station

Witness history come alive as hundreds of living historians re-enact life at Joseph Martin's frontier fort. Watch as two cultures clash and the flames of war are once again ignited on Virginia's frontier. Activities include tours of Cherokee Warrior and Colonial Militia camps, frontier fort life, and 18th century merchants and colonial traders selling their wares. Various seminars on 18th century topics will be conducted by world renowned historians and lecturers. Frontier battles between the natives and the settlers highlight the event at 1 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. War is imminent. .

The Raid at Martin's Station reenactment can be better described as an "on-going living history demonstration" rather than a "reenactment" by its usual definition. While the event is hosted and coordinated by the Wilderness Road State Park, the Friends of Wilderness Road sponsor the event. The activities associated with the Raid and trade fair are the combined efforts of the local civic, community, and school groups, 18th century suttlers and merchants, and various military and native reenactment groups.
