Join us for the 159th anniversary recounting of “the Town of Smithfield’s most dramatic event.” This two-day engagement between Union and Confederate troops saw artillery and musket fire reverberating up and down Main Street eventually resulting in the destruction of the US Army Gunboat Smith Briggs.

Meet your guide at the Isle of Wight Museum for a brief overview of this Civil War battle as well as a walk along Main Street to several sites associated with the significant events from January 30 to February 2, 1864.
