    schema:description "The scene of incessant battles, campaigns, and occupations, Virginia's Shenandoah Valley had been touched by the Civil War's cruel hand during four years of conflict. In an effort to commemorate the Civil War's sesquicentennial in the Shenandoah Valley, historians Jonathan A. Noyalas and Nancy T. Sorrells, have assembled a first-rate team of scholars, on behalf of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, to examine the Shenandoah Valley's Civil War era story. Based on presentations made during the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation's sesquicentennial conferences, this collection of twelve essays examines a variety of aspects of the Civil War era in the "Breadbasket of the Confederacy." From analyses of leadership, to the importance of the Second Battle of Winchester, to the various campaigns' impact on the Valley's demographically diverse population; the complexities of unionism in the Shenandoah, to General Robert H. Milroy's enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation; the role poetry and art played in immortalizing the event of Sheridan's Ride; and the postwar activities of the Valley's Ladies Memorial Associations, as well as attempts by members of the Sheridan's Veterans' Association to advance postwar reconciliation, this diverse collection illuminates the varying and complex ways in which the conflict impacted the Valley, and how the events in the Shenandoah impacted the Civil War's outcome. -- Amazon.com."@en ;
