General Lee marches, again


Leesburg, Va., will be filled with infantry, cavalry, sutlers, wagons and carriages Saturday and May 14 as the Loudoun Museum presents "The Road to Antietam."

North King Street will be closed to traffic from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, and the hands of time turn back to the year of 1862 as General Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia pass through town on their way to the Battle of Antietam.

The event depicts a Civil War funeral, a military court, a field hospital, a fashion show and an 1860 ball. There will be a military camp, drilling and firing, period music, lectures on fashions and children's games. Spectators can have their picture taken by an 1860-era photographer. Admission is $3. Call (703) 777-7427.
