Volunteers Needed for Historic Mosby's Raid Reenactment

Organizers of the St. Patrick's Day Mosby’s Herndon Station Raid Reenactment are seeking volunteers to help out with the event. 

The reenactment begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. on March 17 in downtown Herndon. Col. John Singleton Mosby and his Rangers will ride into town to recreate his surprise attack on the First Vermont Cavalry at the Herndon Depot. 

The Herndon Historical Society and the Herndon Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring the free event. About 10-12 volunteers are needed to serve as event marshals for the reenactment.

Volunteers will be needed from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be provided a box lunch. Volunteers will serve as crowd control during the event, as well as manning street and sidewalk barricades, and supplementing the police and police support team.

Most of the participating volunteers will also have an up close look at the events with front-row placement during the reenactments. 

Those interested in volunteering can contact Richard Downer at rfdowner@gmail.com with the subject line "Mosby Event Volunteer" or call him at 703-795-3964.
