Fridays at the Front Battlefield Tour

Fridays at the Front – “Bullets…Like a Hail Storm”: The Battle of Rutherford’s Farm

Car caravan tour of sites related to the July 20, 1864, battle where Confederates under Gen. Stephen Dodson Ramseur were overwhelmed and routed by Union cavalry – a rare Federal victory amidst a series of Federal humiliations at the hands of Jubal Early. The least-known of Winchester’s six major battles, the battlefield itself has been largely overwhelmed by development, but this rare tour will allow visitors to understand the battle and learn the stories of the soldiers who fought there.

Tour is FREE, but preregistration is required. Call (540) 740-4545, or register online at:
