July Civil War Trust 2018 Calendar: Cedar Mountain, Virginia


From the 2018 Civil War Trust 2018 Calendar, July.

CEDAR MOUNTAIN, VIRGINIA

498 Acres Saved

The Battle of Cedar Mountain on August 9, 1862, marked the first major Civil War battle in Culpeper County, Virginia --  and, with an estimated 2,707 casualties, was also the bloodiest.

Today the Trust is actively working with the county and our partners to transform the battlefield into a state park, together with the battlefield at  the nearby Brandy Station, site of the largest cavalry battle ever fought on American soil.
