New Market: The Shenandoah Valley

Painting of a Shenandoah Valley farm by William L. Sonntag (c.1860)

Context. Context. Context.

One of my mentors in the history field constantly taught and reminded me of this important aspect of studying the past. It has become one of the continual questions I ask when approaching military or social history. What’s the context?

One important part of context is understanding a region where a significant event happened. That’s what we’re discussing in today’s new video! Come on a journey to one of my favorite places in the world…

The Shenandoah Valley

It was a windy day, but we shot some video at Rockfish Gap in 2018.

Video Highlights

  • Photos of the Valley
  • Topography – including a location video at New Market Gap

Thanks for watching!
