The Guns of Cross Keys Caravan
Saturday, September 14, 2019, 10 am
Southeast of Harrisonburg, Virginia,
on June 8th and 9th, 1862, Stonewall Jackson’s troops delivered two stunning, back-to-back victories on consecutive days to end the Valley Campaign of 1862. This tour focuses on the first of the twin battles: Cross Keys. The story of the Battle of Cross Keys is a tale of dominant artillery. Both sides relied on the long arm, and few battlefield landscapes illustrate the decisive power of artillery as well as Cross Keys. This 90-minute caravan tour focuses on the use, and misuse, of the big guns that helped decide the result of Jackson’s campaign. The tour is FREE/ pay-what-you-wish, but space is limited so pre-registration is required. To learn more, click below or call 540-292-0863 and leave a message or text.
