Sabres & Saddles: Cavalry at Cedar Creek
Swift, aggressive cavalry attacks began and ended the battle of Cedar Creek in October, 1864. The outcome of this vicious battle was undetermined until Union commanding general Philip Sheridan turned loose his cavalry leaders including George Armstrong Custer. Join Ranger Rick Ashbacker to experience the terrain, tactics, and weapons used by cavalry units at Cedar Creek.  Meet at the National Park Service Visitor Contact Station (7712 Main Street, Middletown, Virginia) for this car caravan tour.
