History at Sunset: “Star Fort in War and Peace”
August 21, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
One of the principal Civil War fortifications constructed to protect Winchester was Star Fort, named for its seven –pointed design. Used by both sides throughout the war, the fort was heavily involved in both the Battle of Second Winchester (June 1863) and the Battle of Third Winchester (September 1864). This special program, led by Ranger Jeff Driscoll, will give an in-depth tour of the construction and history of Star Fort, from the Civil War to its recent preservation.
Meet at Star Fort (Fortress Drive and US 522, Winchester, VA).
