Civil War Events in September

While Civil War enthusiasts flock to Chickamauga, GA for this weekend's 145th anniversary re-enactment, there are other battles that are also celebrating the same anniversary.

Opequon, VA - September 19, 1864 - Is an A rated battle that is part of Sheridan's Shenandoah Valley Campaign

Fisher's Hill, VA - September 21-22, 1864 - This B rated battle is also part Sheridan’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign

Fort Davidson, MO -September 27, 1864 - This might be an opportunity to visit the fort which was part of Price’s Missouri Expedition

Chaffin's Farm/New Market Heights, VA - September 29-30, 1864 - Was an early battle featuring U.S. Colored Troops. The troops showed great valor and several were awarded Medals of Honor.

I hope you will have the opportunity to visit one of the sites this month.
