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.
