Cedar Creek and the Shenandoah Campaign in 1864
George Watts Hill Alumni Center’s Royall Room
Thursday, Oct. 23 | 7-9 p.m.
While Grant hammered away at Lee, Union strategy included control of the Shenandoah Valley. For Confederates, it was an avenue to threaten Washington City and, for Federal forces, a priority for the Valley was a “breadbasket” for Lee’s army. Join us for the fights at Winchester, New Market and, the battle that broke Jubal Early’s Confederate army, Cedar Creek.
