You’ll be able to see two replica cannons on Saturday, at the grand opening of the Stafford Civil War Park. The crew from Friends of Stafford Civil War Sites set them up yesterday morning.

Here you can find a map and complete schedule of events for Saturday. A junior soldier program will be going on from 12:45-4 p.m., and will offer kids the chance to learn drilling, write letters to home, and receive a commemorative patch and a set of enlistment papers.

Visitors should park at the Brooke VRE Station, 1721 Brooke Road. A free shuttle bus will run to the park 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
