18-21 • Virginia. Jackson's 1862 Valley Campaign Chambersburg Civil War Seminars & Tours will host this conference focused on Jackson's 1862 Valley Campaign led by Gary Ecelbarger. We will study the Battle of Kernstown, skirmish at Meem's Bottom all the way to the Battle of Cross Keys and the Battle of Port Republic. Our lecture day will include talks by Michael C. Harris, Bill Miller, Frank O'Reilly, Scott C. Patchan, Don Pfanz, and Gary Ecelbarger. Here's a sneak peak of the Day 1 Bus Tour with Ecelbarger: We will experience the first phase of the Valley Campaign, from March through April, 1862. We begin with a detailed study of the Battle of Kernstown (March 23), the largest battle fought east of the Alleghenies for 9 months of the war. From there, we head southward, "up" the Valley Pike following Stonewall Jackson's retreating army and its defensive positions, including the scene of the skirmish at Meem's Botton, where Turner Ashby's close call cost him his beautiful horse. Our tour day ends in front of the fifth Stonewall Jackson headquarters house we will view this day, where some of the most momentous decisions were made to set the stage for the rest of the campaign.
