REMINGTON, Va. (AP) -- The 150th anniversary of the Battle of Kelly's Ford will be commemorated next month with a ball and a symposium.
Period dress is optional for the ball. It's scheduled for March 16 at the Inn at Kelly's Ford in Remington. The inn will host a Kelly's Ford Symposium on March 17.
The Culpeper Star-Exponent (http://bit.ly/WQoeMO ) reports that the Brandy Station Foundation will donate half of the ball's proceeds to the Civil War Trust toward the purchase of Fleetwood Hill. The Fleetwood Hill property is the core battlefield of the Battle of Brandy Station in June 1863.
The remaining proceeds will be used to support the Graffiti House.
The Battle of Kelly's Ford was fought on March 17, 1863.
