October 20, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Known as the “Gibraltar of the Valley,” Gen. Jubal Early felt that Fisher’s Hill “was the only position…where a defensive line could be taken” following his defeat at 3rd Winchester on September 19, 1864. Just three days later, on September 22nd, Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan and his Army of the Shenandoah struck again. Join Ranger James Horn as he examines this critical action in the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Meet at Ramseur’s Hill (1864 Battlefield Road, Fisher’s Hill, Virginia). The tour will consist of both moderate walking and a car-caravan tour to various sites across the battlefield.
