History at Sunset: Retreat and Redemption: The Union 19th Corps at Cedar Creek
After spending most of the Civil War fighting in Louisiana, the Union 19th Corps was sent east in 1864, eventually becoming a critical force in Philip Sheridan’s Army of the Shenandoah. Attacked from two directions at the battle of Cedar Creek, the corps initially retreated from its trenches, but later found redemption during Sheridan’s late afternoon counterattack. Join Ranger Rick Ashbacker to explore the key actions and locations of the 19th Corps at Cedar Creek.
