Waynesboro was a sleepy little town in Virginia, nestled on the banks of the South River at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and best known for the trestle bridge of the Virginia Central Railroad that crossed there. Little did the residents know that in September 1864 the bridge would draw elements of General Sheridan’s army to their hamlet to destroy it. Neither could they have foreseen that the once grand army of General Jubal Early would meet its demise in their village just months later in March 1865, marking the end of Civil War action in the Shenandoah Valley. Spectators are invited to relive these historic battles on September 16 and 17, 2017. Meet soldiers from each army, taste camp life, and even participate in an 1860’s “Blue vs. Grey” baseball game.
