“Remember Me: The Gettysburg Officers on the Courthouse Wall”: Civil War Graffiti – Trish Ridgeway
Shenandoah Valley Civil War Round Table
Trish Ridgeway will present this program focusing on graffiti left on the walls of the Old Court House in Winchester (today’s Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum) by Union officers who were captured during the 1863 Gettysburg Campaign and held in the courthouse. Trish will tell the fascinating story of how these captives ended up in the courthouse and will detail the fate of the men after they left Winchester. The meeting will be held at 100 South Mason Street (corner of Mason and Newman), Harrisonburg, Virginia. The parking lot is located in the rear of the building and should be entered from Newman.
