The program will begin at James Madison University in the Allegheny Room on June 11, 2021, and will end in the afternoon of June 13 when we return to Harrisonburg, Virginia. On Friday we will offer three speakers. They are all noted Civil War historians.

   Scott Patchan: “Winchester to Appomattox, the Emergence of    Sheridan’s cavalry as a Strike Force”

Following the lectures we will all enjoy our customary banquet meal. On Saturday morning we will depart from the Sleep Inn and travel to Petersburg, Virginia. There we will meet with our tour leader, Edward Alexander. For details about the events on Saturday and Sunday, visit the Schedule page.
