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.

We're closing in on the 152nd anniversary of the St. Albans Raid. It's hard to believe that nearly two years have passed since the big sesquicentennial celebration, which attracted 8,000 visitors for just one of the two reenactments. While no plans appear to be in the works for the Oct. 19, 2016 anniversary, the annual St. Albans Raid Half-Marathon race was again a big hit this past summer. Watch for that event again next year and be sure to visit the St. Albans Museum website for all of the historical events and related information necessary to relive the past of this truly remarkable and vibrant community.
