Crossing of the Dan

Event Location

Event Date & Time

The Crossing of the Dan, a nearly forgotten episode of the American Revolution that occurred at South Boston, Virginia, in 1781, received recognition in September 2013 by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution as a major historic event.  This action has catapulted what was previously a local commemoration to a national event.

The Dan River Chapter, Virginia Society Sons of the American Revolution, Berryman Green Chapter, Virginia Daughters of the American Revolution, Halifax County Historical Society, and the Town of South Boston are hosting the 238th Anniversary Commemoration of the Crossing of the Dan in historic downtown South Boston, Virginia.  The commemorative events are scheduled for February 16, 2019. 

Centered around The Prizery, where the Crossing of the Dan Exhibit is open to the public. Saturday’s program on February 16th will feature a speaker, Dr. Carole W. Troxler, speaking on " The Loyalists in the Back County ", wreath presentation ceremony, an encampment on the Dan River, and a re-enactment of The Crossing, weather permitting.

More information and on-line registration is available on the Virginia Society Website www.virginia-sar.org/vassar/index.phpand scroll down to the Crossing of the Dan
