Second Battle of Kernstown Tour
July 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Kernstown Battlefield Association will commemorate the 155th anniversary of the Second Battle of Kernstown with a weekend full of special events. Our own Mike Cannane and Larry Turner will be giving a walking/driving tour of the Second Battle of Kernstown starting at 9 am. Meet at the Visitors’ Center and dress accordingly. The morning tour is a walking tour of the Kernstown property. Shaffer’s BBQ is providing us with a box lunch menu. Lunches can be ordered in the morning before the tour, and will be ready for the lunch break. At 11 am, the newly rebuilt front porch of the Pritchard House will be dedicated.
After the lunch break, the tour will reconvene at 1 pm at the Visitors’ Center. The afternoon tour is partly a driving tour, with spots to include Grafton Integrated Health (McLaughlin’s Artillery Battalion); the cavalry engagement between Gens Averell and Vaughn; Gen Rodes’ march route around the Union left flank; and the Fluvanna Artillery at the Mahaney house.
In addition, our docents will be giving Battlefield, 1854 Pritchard House, Museum and Artillery Annex tours. The Gift Shop also will be open.
