This May we traveled to Harrisonburg, Va in pursuit of the 1862 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. The tour was excellent! Here’s our recap via pictures:
Thursday, May 19 we followed the footsteps of Lee and Jackson on a tour of Historic Lexington led by Keven Walker and Edwin Bearss. Visits included the Stonewall Jackson House, Lee Chapel, Traveler’s grave, VMI Museum and Jackson’s Grave.
Friday featured all day sessions at Massanetta Springs Conference Center with talks by Jerry Holsworth, Steve French, Gary Ecelbarger, John Schildt, Daniel Toomey and Jeff Wert.
Sunday we continued our trek of Jackson’s Campaign to Front Royal, Kernstown Battlefield and Stonewall Jackson Headquarters with Jeff Wert and Ed Bearss.
Thank you to all of our participants – we had a fantastic trip! Hope to see many of you at our July “Gettysburg Day 3 & Beyond” seminar or September’s “Lincoln at Gettysburg.”
