“Tar Heels in the Valley” Conference [Cancelled]
October 23 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Far from home, North Carolinians played a pivotal role in many of the actions in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War, from Stonewall Jackson’s early campaigns to the epic fights of the 1864 Shenandoah Campaign. On Saturday, October 23, 2021, the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation will present a Civil War conference, “Tar Heels in the Valley”: North Carolinians in the Shenandoah Valley During the Civil War, that will look back on the experiences of those North Carolina soldiers.
Held at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh, North Carolina, the conference will focus on famous personalities such as Gen. Stephen D. Ramseur, the experiences and hardships of everyday foot soldiers, and battles such as Harper’s Ferry, Second Winchester, and Third Winchester. Speakers will include Keith Bohannon, Michael Hardy, Charles Knight, Scott Mingus, and Brian Steel Wills.
Cost: $30; $27 for SVBF members. Pre-registration is required.
