“Born of Fire”: West Virginia and the Civil War
A Civil War Conference

Holiday Inn Martinsburg
Martinsburg, West Virginia
(July 31, 2021)

West Virginia was created by the Civil War – born of internal and national politics, geography, and the fires of war. The Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation’s 2021 Valley Conference, “Born of Fire”: West Virginia and the Civil War, will look at the Mountaineer state’s Civil War story, from the early campaigns with Robert E. Lee and George McClellan, Stonewall Jackson’s victory at the state’s largest battle, critical actions in the Kanawha Valley, the stories of individual West Virginians at war – on both sides – and the epic tale of the creation of the state.

The conference will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020, at the Holiday Inn Martinsburg in Martinsburg, West Virginia, and will feature speakers Dennis Frye, Joe Geiger, Hunter Lesser, Terry Lowry, and Rick Wolfe.
