Join us at Prickett’s Fort State Park as the Augusta County Militia explores the life and times of early Appalachian pioneer Joseph Doddridge.

A militia muster, inspection, and the dispatching of scouts and spies will be discussed and demonstrated throughout the weekend. This event is on Saturday and Sunday, October 7-8, 2023.

If you’re looking for a place to spend the night consider Tygart Lake State Park for lodge or cabin accommodations.
