Fridays at the Front – “A Bengal Tiger Ready to Spring”: The Battle of Cross Keys
June 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
A tour of sites related to the June 8, 1862 battle – the first of the “twin victories” that brought a close to Stonewall Jackson’s Valley Campaign – from Union Church and the beginning of the fighting to the fence line where the main Federal attack was repulsed in the “Slaughter of the 8th New York.” Overlooked by Massanutten Mountain and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cross Keys is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved battlefields in the nation.
The tour is free, but pre-registration is required. To register, or for information on other Fridays at the Front tours, click here.
