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.

Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park Announces
Special Guest Lecture Series on the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign

"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.

This presentation will examine how various factors including population recovery, growing economic stability, an end to Military Reconstruction, and a greater focus on the shared experiences of Union and Confederate veterans sparked the era of postwar reconciliation in the Shenandoah Valley by the early 1880s. 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.
