Our conversation today with Ashley Sonntag, Operations Manager/Curator for Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation took place in their museum located at 8437 Valley Pike in Middletown.

Ashley told us about the organization and explained it’s mission and current restoration projects. She talked about the history in Shenandoah Valley not just during the Battle of Cedar Creek but throughout the 19th century. We discussed the various items on display in the museum and how they’ve come to be part of their collection.

She gave me details for the re-enactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek which takes place Saturday & Sunday, October 16-17, 2021. You can learn about the speakers, demonstrations, get your tickets and find historical information on their website: https://www.ccbf.us/ and by following them on Facebook.
