VMI Cadets March In May 12, 2014

On May 15, VMI will commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of New Market with the traditional ceremony and parade — but this year, these activities will hold special significance as 2014 marks 150 years since the New Market cadets, many still in their teens, charged across a farm field and helped to secure a key victory for Confederate Gen. John C. Breckinridge.

As part of the commemoration, Cadets will march from Lexington to New Market Battle Field.  The Cadets will make camp at The Frontier Culture Museum on Monday May 12, 2014.  You are invited to meet and greet the Cadets from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on the American side of the MuVMI battleseum.  Please join us to commemorate the 150 anniversary of the Battle of New Market.
