    That whole valley is chock full of history! When I went with my son to the 150th Cedar Creek in 2014, I could feel it the whole time I was there! Even our campsite along Meadow Brook was part of the Cedar Creek battle. My first visit to the Valley was in 1967 and I could feel it then, too, although I didn't know much and we didn't visit any battlefield sites. We saw a lot of signs about Stonewall's Valley Campaign, though, especially from viewpoints in Shenandoah National Park.

    Yep! There were more! May not have been the same signs, since probably some have been replaced since the late 1960s.

    A *BUMP* for the 155th anniversary of the Battle of Kernstown and beginning of Stonewall Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign!
