28th Annual Guyandotte Civil War Days
Reenactment 156th Anniversary of the Raid on Guyandotte
November 1 - 5, 2017

Mission Accomplished!

Congratulations to all members of the Guyandotte Civil War Days, Raid on Guyandotte, Inc. And to all the Reenactors, Volunteers, Sponsors and Supporting Institutions for making "Thunder in the Village" 2017 one of the most successful in the 28 year history of this annual event.

Our next member's meeting will be held on Thursday, November 30th, 2017 at 6:00 PM at VFW Post 9738, located at 227 Main Street, Huntington, WV. This will be our regular End-Of-Year meeting where this year's event will be reviewed and a Nominating Committee will be appointed for next year's election of New Officers.

At that meeting we will also make our Nomination for the West Virginia History Hero Award for next year's History Day at the West Virginia Legislature on February 22, 2018.


Additional videos of this year's "Thunder in the Village" events are currently being edited and will be made available to watch on this website when completed. I would also like to personally thank Mr. Joe Murphy of Murphy Media for providing additional cinematographers to help document this year's events.
