This weekend, there are a lot of St. Patrick's Day events in Culpeper to bring the luck of the Irish.

There will be bagpipes, Irish dance, gold hunts, races, live music, green beer, special menus

A chance to walk in the footsteps of a St. Patrick's Day battle that happened here 160 years ago.

Saturday's Battle of Kelly's Ford 160th Anniversary Guided Tour, which is sold out, is sponsored by the American Battlefield Trust

Culpeper Battlefield Tours, the Museum of Culpeper History, Culpeper Tourism, and the Brandy Station Foundation.

The Battle of Kelly's Ford on March 17, 1863 was overshadowed by the Battle of Brandy Station a few months later

It was still an important step in the U.S. cavalry's growing ability to meet and defeat its Confederate counterparts during the American Civil War, according to an event release.
