Warren County not only suffered through "The Burning" during the 1864 Valley Campaign, but it also experienced a near-complete breakdown of law and order, as the area lay between the lines. This program will examine not only the impact of the destruction of property to Warren County civilians, but also this era of the nearly total lawless chaos that occurred.

Rapid communication in wartime profoundly affected military actions and outcomes. The invention of portable tabletop printing presses at the time of the American Civil War allowed for better communication in the field. Used by both sides, these presses allowed for the rapid production and wide distribution of urgent orders. This presentation will examine the role and impact of the portable press during the American Civil War.

During an approximately two week period in late September and early October, Gen. Philip Sheridan carried out orders from Ulysses S. Grant that directed "…that nothing should be left to invite the enemy to return. Take all provisions, forage, and stock…such as cannot be consumed, destroy.” Sheridan’s forces did just that.
This program will present the impacts of "The Burning" on the local populace, the reverberating ramifications on the course of the war and the overarching impact on the Shenandoah Valley Campaign’s climatic engagement at Cedar Creek on October 19, 1864.

"Did the Valley Re-elect Abraham Lincoln?"
with Dennis Frye, Chief of Interpretation, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park
Old Courthouse Civil War Museum, 20 North Loudoun Street, Winchester, VA 22601
Time: 7:00PM, Free.
For details or more information, call: (540) 869-3051 or see: NPS.gov
Abraham Lincoln informed his Cabinet of the bad news - he would not be re-elected. The war that was supposed to last 90 days now dragged into its third year by the summer of 1864. The Northern public was tired and weary of battlefield defeats, battlefield stalemates, and battlefield casualties. Jubal Early's invasion of the Union and the burning of Chambersburg epitomized Northern disasters that Lincoln perceived as insurmountable. But Lincoln's dire situation changed dramatically as the eyes of the United States focused upon the Shenandoah Valley.

It will also explore the role that the Shenandoah Valley's women played in honoring the Confederate dead and how Union veterans who visited the Valley in the 1880s tried to improve their relations with the guardians of Confederate memory in an effort to advance the cause of national healing.
