**This year, the two-day Bushy Run Battle reenactment will be split into two days with one reenactment on each day (a reenactment of the first day's battle in the afternoon on August 4th and the second day's battle reenactment occurring in the afternoon on the 5th). This means there will only be one reenactment per day. This will be a change from the previous years of conducting both day's battle reenactments on both Saturday and Sunday (two reenactments per day equaling to four reenactments in total). This change is being made to accommodate for the added historical demonstrations and musical performances that will be taking place in the morning on both Saturday and Sunday and to maintain historical accuracy.**
