Union Gen. Philip Sheridan began his effort to drive Confederates from the Shenandoah Valley with this Sept. 19, 1864, battle north of Winchester. Sheridan overwhelmed the waiting Confederates under Gen. Jubal Early. The fighting proved the bloodiest of all the Valley battles. A large area of the battlefield is preserved in the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields National Heritage District. Self-guided walking tours lead visitors through the battle. For more information about this battlefield and other Winchester sites visit the District's orientation center at the Winchester visitor center (1400 S Pleasant Valley Road).
