Fridays at the Front – “If Any Man Runs…I Will Shoot Him”: The Battle of Piedmont
Car caravan tour of sites related to the June 5, 1864, battle that took place in the rolling landscape of Augusta County.  Union Gen. David “Black Dave” Hunter’s stunning victory – which cost Confederate commander Gen. William “Grumble” Jones his life – abruptly reversed fortunes in the Valley, allowing the Federals to embark on “Hunter’s Raid,” including the occupation of Staunton and the burning of VMI.  Tour led by SVBF CEO Keven Walker.

Pre-registration is required. Register by filling out the form on Fridays at the Front page here or by calling the SVBF at 540-740-4545.
