Guided battlefield tours

Join Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield (FCMB) historians for guided walking tours of the battlefield on the second Saturday of the month at 10:00 am. Our next tour will be held on February 12. Learn about the August 9, 1862 encounter in which Confederate troops led by General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson prevailed over Federal troops led by General Nathaniel Banks at a cost of 3800 men killed or wounded.

During the tour exploring terrain largely unchanged since the Civil War, your guide will offer insight into the chronology of the battle, share stories of the soldiers and civilians impacted, and identify landmarks. 

The tour typically takes about 2 hours. The tour route is in both sun and shade; please dress to support your comfort. The terrain can be uneven; sturdy shoes are recommended. Bug spray is also recommended in warm months.

In the event of inclement weather, a notice will be posted here and on our Facebook page regarding the status of the tour.

Donation: A $10 donation to FCMB is appreciated.
