Civil War Trails sign that describes the reunion picnics that veterans from both sides attended here from the 1880’s until the 1930’s.

Soon after the Civil War ended, Veterans from both sides gathered on battlefields like Fisher’s Hill to renew and form new friendships and commemorate the sacrifices made during the war. At this site, many traveled here with their families and friends and if they were from out of town, they came by train to nearby Strasburg.  The reunion at this site was held every August.
