Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park: History at Sunset
September 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
* September 6 History at Sunset: “…one of the most fearful struggles of the war.” The Valiant Stand of the 8th Vermont Infantry and Thomas’s Brigade (6:00 p.m.) In order to give his Union 19th Corps time to form, Gen. William Emory ordered Stephen Thomas’s small brigade across the Valley Pike to delay the Confederate assault. Thomas’s four regiments rose to the occasion…but they paid a heavy price. On this special walk led by Park Ranger Jeff Driscoll, participants will be given photographs of 8th Vermont members who were there and thus learn their fates. Meet at Visitor Contact Station (7712 Main Street, Middletown, VA 22645).
