Free Book Talk with Jerry Holsworth
Sunday, 08/05/2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Stonewall Jackson & Winchester, Virginia with Author Jerry Holsworth Sunday, August 5, 2 p.m. Join author Jerry Holsworth as he discusses his new book, Stonewall Jackson & Winchester, Virginia during a free book talk at The Manassas Museum on August 5 at 2 p.m. Nearby Winchester may be best known as the strategically important town that switched between Confederate and Union control at least 70 times during the Civil War. Many of the townspeople though, reserved their loyalty for the famous Confederate General Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, who passed through the town during many of those occupations. The relationship between Jackson and the town of Winchester began early in the war, in June 1861, and lasted until his early death on May 10, 1863. Many of the Shenandoah Valley townspeople shared Jackson's values and beliefs and admired his success on the battlefield. The remarkable bond between the general and the townspeople is still remembered today. Local historian Jerry Holsworth chronicles the relationship between Jackson and the soldiers and townspeople of Winchester with information gathered from diaries, letters, journals and newspaper articles. Holsworth also recounts stories of the 1862 Shenandoah Valley Campaign, the battles that forever cemented Jackson's place in Winchester history. Stonewall Jackson & Winchester, Virginia is available at Echoes, The Manassas Museum Store.
