Battle Of Waynesboro 150th Anniversary "On This Day" Tour ~ Part 3

Yours truly conducting a tour on the 150th Anniversary (March 2nd) of the Battle of Waynesboro, standing on 15th Street between Locust Ave. & Cherry Ave ( the photos with the houses). This was the terminus of Jubal Early's left flank. The third image was taken in the parking lot of the ball fields at Ridgeview Park, beside the alley that used to be open to the public. That alley was at one time an old road that was connected to Rosser Ave and which the Yankees used to conceal themselves beneath the bluffs and flank Early's left, winning the battle. I spent many days of my youth exploring and roaming that neighborhood and the surrounding woods, fields and streams.

The fourth image was taken at the Plumb House, prior to the tour as I was giving an overview of the battle.

The tour was organized and sponsored by the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation.
