History at Sunset

July 12 @ 7:00 PM

“This Valley…was [a] scene of desolation and ruin.” The Burning of the Shenandoah Valley

Considered one of the most infamous episodes of the entire war, Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan’s systematic destruction of the Valley has been understudied and therefore misunderstood. This program provides an overview of the major events of “The Burning” itself, places it within the larger context of the entire Union war effort, visits one of the local sites associated with this incident and most importantly examines the military, political and personal impacts of “The Burning” on the local populace.

Meet Ranger Eric Campbell at the National Park Service Visitor Contact Station (7712 Main Street, Middletown, VA 22645).
