One of the Valley's few urban battlefields, the landscape and terrain have been altered beyond recognition since the period of significance.

Waynesbsoro was the last significant military action in the Shenandoah Valley during the war.  With Jubal Early’s army destroyed as a fighting unit, there were no southern forces left to contest Union control of the Shenandoah Valley.  And with the Confederate threat in the Valley eliminated, General Sheridan was free to lead his cavalry overland to Petersburg to participate in the final campaign of the war in Virginia.
