On the night of March 9th, 1908, between 25 and 30 masked men rode into the town of Port Royal just after 10:00 pm and proceeded to kick in the door to the telephone operators room, cut the telephone lines, and whip a local man for keeping an “unfit house”. Although the raid on the town was insignificant in terms of the violence and destruction caused, a small group of these masked men ended up in a shootout just a few miles down the road that would change the course of the Tobacco Wars, and take down the leader of the Night Riders.

To learn more about what happened, and to see the Night Rider raid of Port Royal first hand, come join us for this immersive night program that takes visitors through the town of Port Royal on the 113th anniversary attack and be exposed to all perspectives of the conflict.
