Overview

The Shenandoah Valley, which stretches some 200 miles from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to Roanoke, Virginia, is rich in both history and natural beauty. Highlights from the 14 day-trips in this book include such sites as the New Market Battlefield, where 247 teenage cadets from VMI halted advancing Union troops; 6,000 acres of rare virgin forest in Ramsey's Draft Wilderness Area; the Mennonite towns of Dayton and Bridgewater, where the horse and buggy is still a primary mode of transportation; Highland County, where sheep outnumber people; and Fort Valley, which was the planned route for George Washington's final retreat had the Revolutionary War turned out badly for the Americans.
