Ft. Pocahontas

The historic events which took place on May 24, 1864 are remembered each year with a reenactment of the Action at Wilson’s Wharf. Joe Funk, the great-nephew and first-person presenter of Brigadier General Godfrey Weitzel, commands the event as he has since its inception.

This Union fortification comes to life as military and civilian reenactors portray the lives of soldier and citizen inhabitants of the fort. Sutlers offering reproductions of Civil War-era merchandise and clothing contribute to an authentic atmosphere. Fort Pocahontas is open to the public for this event from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and 10am to 2pm on Sunday. Spectators are invited to tour the fort where the art of field fortification is revealed and to visit the bustling camps inside it for family-friendly living history activities throughout the day. Battle reenactments are at 1pm. Food vendors are on site. All proceeds support the preservation efforts at Fort Pocahontas.
