|The annual Jeffersonville Civil War reenactment was held at Crab Orchard Museum on April 20th through April 22nd.
The events included a ladies tea, battle reenactments, games for children, and a glimpse of life in a cavalry camp.
|The skirimish is a reenactment of a battle that happened in Tazewell, which was named Jeffersonville at that time, near what is now Ramey’s Chevrolet. In the spring of 1864, General William Woods Averell was advancing from the Kanawa Valley area into Abbs Valley and Wittens Mill with the intention of attacking the salt works in Saltville. When he reached Tazewell, he encountered Confederate troops and a battle ensued. After the battle, he learned that the salt works were heavily defended by General John Hunt Morgan, and opted to redirect his target to the VA/TN railroad bridge in Wytheville. General Averell was later defeated when General Morgan and General William E. “Grumble” Jones circled his troops in Crockett’s Cove, and he then retreated to Monroe County.|
