Fridays at the Front – “A Very Formidable Barrier”: Showdown on the Opequon
Car caravan tour of sites related to the clashes between Confederate Gen. Jubal A. Early and Union Gen. Philip H. Sheridan from early August 1864 up to the Third Battle of Winchester on September 19, 1864.  While often referred to as “mimic war,” this period witnessed relentless combat – including more than 50 battles, skirmishes, and actions from August 10 to September 18 – building to the crescendo of Third Winchester (aka The Battle of the Opequon).  Tour led by SVBF CEO Keven Walker.
