About Saltville

In October and December 1864, war came to this quiet little valley town. Saltville was home to one of the main saltworks of the Confederacy during the Civil War and came to be known as the Salt Capital of the Confederacy. The Union Army had their sights set on Saltville. They were bound and determined to destroy the Saltworks at all costs. 150 years later, they will battle again! Bring the family and spend the day or the weekend with us. Step back in time to 1864. See how life was lived and how war was fought. You don’t want to miss this special event.

    My great grandfather (37th KY Mounted Infantry) was a participant 150 years ago. My son and I will represent that unit as reenactors. I have mailed in my registration and fees to the Saltville Historical Foundation.
    Are there any further details, schedules, etc… to share at this time? If not, I’ll await updates by email as they are available.
