By Jonathan LucciFrederick County ReportAs most residents o FrederickCounty probably know the hor-ror and carnage o the Ameri-can Civil War ooded into theShenandoah Valley 150 years ago.Six large ull scale battles anda number o skirmishes searedwar’s consequences into the soulo Frederick County, while armseverywhere were destroyed dur-ing “Te Burning” in 1864.Much o that history has beenpreserved, while sadly much o it has also been lost to develop-ment. Anyone interested in theCivil War will quickly noticethe myriad collection o histori-cal markers lining the roads allthroughout the county. A CivilWar bu o any level o enthusi-asm can nd parts o most o thebattleelds to tour, and there areeven some guided tours oered.Te battleeld o the Firstbattle o Winchester is sadly cov-ered by the modern structures,shopping plazas and heavily tra-cked roads. Bowers Hill, whereStonewall Jackson crushed the valiant Union deenders is now an upscale housing development.Tankully there is a sel guidedtour o the battle and plenty o markers telling the story o thechaotic ght. Te First battleo Winchester is oten used as aprime example by preservation-ists o how sad it is to see an en-tire eld o honor where bravemen bled and died totally pavedover and replaced with homesand malls.Te Second battle o Win-chester was part o the amousGettysburg campaign, anotherthrilling Conederate victory asthey moved north toward theirate on the rolling elds o Penn-sylvania. Small parts o the bat-tleeld are preserved and mark-ers tell the story o the ght northo town.Te Tird battle o Winchesterwas the largest and most costly o any battle that took place in theValley. It was a signature Union victory that began the end o theConederate success and hopesor victory. Te battleeld is par-tially preserved with a large tracto land owned by the Civil Warrust directly behind Milbrookhigh school. A beautiul walk-ing trail leads to a large open eldwhere Union troops were moweddown in their brave attacks. Tebattle culminated near the loca-tion o Mount Hebron Cemetery.wo battles o Kernstownmarred the beauty o the eldssouth o Winchester. Te Firstbattle o Kernstown occurred inMarch o 1862 and grew out o Stonewall Jackson’s amous Val-ley campaign. Te Second battleo Kernstown was a Conederate victory, as the southern troopsbroke a Union line huddled be-hind a stonewall. Tis area o theeld is still preserved and can betoured. A portion o the rst bat-tle is preserved by the Museum o the Shenandoah Valley.Cedar Creek may have beenthe most crucial battle o the Val-ley campaigns, a comeback vic-tory by Phil Sheridan that helpedensure President Lincoln’s reelec-tion to the White House. Mucho it is preserved by the CedarCreek Battleeld Foundation andNational Park Service and theground’s beauty contrasts might-ily with the horror o what hap-pened here.In addition to these wonderuleducational opportunities, twobeautiul cemeteries give resi-dents and visitors the chance tohonor and revere the men whoought on both sides o the con-ict.Stonewall Cemetery is the -nal resting place or thousandso Conederate soldiers killed inthe Valley campaigns. One o therst ever known memorials tothe unknown dead is located inthe middle o a large area wherethose who could not be identiedwere laid to rest. Monumentsrom individual states are inter-spersed among the Coneder-ate dead. Across the street romtheir earthly oes lie the bodieso America’s heroes who died indeense o the Union and eman-cipation. Many o the dead areburied near where they werestruck down by Conederate can-non located near the Conederatecemetery. Te monuments romindividual states mark the ceme-tery, the Pennsylvania monumentis particularly beautiul.All o this and much more isavailable or Frederick County  visitors and residents to learnrom and honor the memory o the soldiers o both sides and thecivilians who suered throughthe war. And come September24th, Frederick County will behaving a Civil War weekend witha number o great opportunities,which are listed on the websiteo the Frederick County Visitor’sBureau.
