Join local author, James H. Donnell (Lt. Col., USAF, Ret.) as he shares about his book, Shenandoah Valley 1862, which was published in 2013. Donnell’s fascination with American History continued on and he published a second book, Atlanta 1864, three years later. In this session, learn about what happened in the spring of 1862, the Shenandoah Valley of western Virginia which was the scene of some of the fiercest fighting of the Civil War. Marching over 600 miles in 48 days, Jackson’s army won five major battles, constantly outmaneuvering a Union army that, at times, outnumbered his troops 3 to 1.
