Battle of Waynesboro Self-Guided Tour

Early last month, I was honored to lead a tour of the Battle of Waynesboro for the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation.
Today, I had the privelege of working with Terry Heder (Director of Interpretation, Education & History) and Dan Reinhart (Resource Management Specialist) of the SVBF to begin work on developing a self-guided tour for those interested in the history of the Battle of Waynesboro. We decided on several sites and stops for the tour and will be working together on the text in the coming days.

The SVBF has done an excellent job in preserving Civil War battlefields here in the Valley and in making the history available and easily accessible to the public. The SVBF's spirit of cooperation when working with local museums, historical societies and landowners is quite welcome and refreshing and should be a model for other organizations. As already noted, I'm honored and privileged to have played a small part in their sesquicentennial commemoration.
