Located in the Shenandoah Valley region, opportunities to visit history abound in Winchester, Virginia. The site of several major Civil War battles, the city changed hands over 70 times over the course of the war.
Today, graffiti from captured and hospitalized soldiers is still visible in the 19th century courthouse in the town’s main square. Stone walls and cemeteries that provided cover for those soldiers are still standing. And the vistas of the Allegheny Mountains and the Blue Ridge that awed the troops 150 years ago still offer their breathtaking views.
