Best Trails for Civil War Hikes around Shenandoah Valley

Event Category: Class

Start Date: Saturday, 5/11/2019

Start Time: 3:00 PM

Contact: Larry Broadwell

Email: bakpacker1@verizon.net

Description: PATC's "Hiker's Guide to Civil War Trails in the Mid-Atlantic Region" presents 27 routes that combine scenic walks with visits to sites where important events occurred during the Civil War. Some of the best are in or around Shenandoah Valley. Strategic points such as Winchester and Harpers Ferry changed hands multiple times, and trails there provide excellent perspective on key developments. Observers at Signal Knob at the head of the Massanuttens relayed messages to and from Confederate leaders in Richmond, and Jubal Early's staff followed trails there to plan the South's last major effort to control the Valley before the Battle of Cedar Creek. Gary Kosciusko, one of the book's writers, will present slides and tell about several nearby routes in the book. This one and a half hour session at Samuels Library in Front Royal is free, but space is limited and advance registration is required. Call 540/635-3153, ext. 108.
