For over three years during the American Civil War, Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County, Virginia, stood symbolically as the “Gibraltar of the Shenandoah” in the face of Federal forces determined to occupy critical hub for Confederate activities in the Shenandoah Valley. Though finally occupied by Federal forces for the first time in June 1864, the area continued to be a focal point until the last major action in the Valley occurred here in March 1865.
Today, as a part of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields National Historic District and as a partner with the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation and the Virginia Civil War Trails program, the area serves as an important starting point in understanding the role of the Shenandoah Valley in the Civil War. Through its eleven chapters, Gibraltar of the Shenandoah gives the reader an opportunity to visit nearly one hundred different historic sites, buildings, and roadways; all of which have been woven together in a system of tours that offer a unique visual and interpretive historic experience.
