New Market Battlefield, VA (6-23-09) : The Battle of New Market was the result of General Ulysses S. Grant's desire, late in the Civil War, to gain control of the Confederacy's breadbasket...the Shenandoah Valley.  In spring 1864 Union Major General Franz Sigel's army of 10,000 began there trek south to subdue the valley.  Opposing them was a much smaller Confederate force of about 5,000 under the command of General John C. Breckenridge.  Among the rebel force was a regiment of cadets from the nearby Virginia Military Institute.  The battle took place on on a stormy day; May 15, 1864.  Reluctant to use the cadets as cannon fodder, General Breckenridge at first held them back.  It soon became clear however that, to break the Union lines, the cadets must be put in...

The following series of photos sets you in the footsteps of the cadets as they marched into battle that day...

Fort Ward - Protecting Washington DC - Alexandria, Virginia : From http://oha.alexandriava.gov/fortward/fw-history.html#defenses:

Construction of Fort Ward began in July 1861, immediately after the Union Army's defeat at the Battle of First Bull Run (First Manassas). The fort was completed in September 1861 and was named for Commander James H. Ward, the first Union naval officer to die in the Civil War. The initial earthwork fort had a perimeter of 540 yards and emplacements for 24 guns. After the Battle of Second Bull Run, Fort Ward was scheduled for rebuilding beginning in 1863. When the war ended in April 1865, the enlarged fort had a perimeter of 818 yards and emplacements for 36 guns. Throughout the Civil War Fort Ward served as a deterrent and never came under Confederate attack. It was abandoned in December 1865, and salvageable materials were sold at auction.
