Field & Walking Tour

For a couple of weeks in February 1862, the attention of the nation was riveted on two isolated Confederate fortifications in west Tennessee. The weakest link of Confederate general Albert Sidney Johnston’s defensive line in the west, Forts Henry and Donelson were ripe for invasion if only the Federals could muster the courage to take advantage of them. Enter Ulysses S. Grant.

Jackson's Valley Campaign, Ecelbarger, Civil War Tour, Stonewall,

This Saturday, May 20 tour, led by the leading expert, Gary Ecelbarger – “the man who wrote the book” - will follow the footsteps of Jackson and his army over historic terrain rarely viewed by organized groups. We will explore the small but vicious killing fields at Front Royal, Buckton Station, Fairview, Middletown and Newtown (today's Stephens City). In addition, we will stand on and near the heretofore forgotten Valley crossroads where on-the-spot decisions altered the length, course, and momentum of the campaign. This includes stops at Asbury Chapel, Double Tollgate, Cedarville and Milltown. When all is said and done, each participant will leave with a comprehensive understanding of the Heart of the Valley Campaign.
