150 Years of History

The story of the St. Albans Raid has all the makings of a silver-screen drama. The northernmost and perhaps most unusual land action of the Civil War took place on Oct. 19, 1864, in St. Albans, Vt.

On Sept. 18-21, 2014 the 150th Anniversary of The Raid was commemorated with special events and activities throughout St. Albans. The event was selected by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce as a Top 10 Vermont Event for Fall 2014 and by the Vermont Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee as Vermont’s Most Significant Civil War Event for 2014.
