Battle of Cedar Creek Lecture

This is author and playwright E. Warren Perry talking about the Battle of Cedar Creek.  I thought he did a pretty decent job, but a couple audience members flubbed some facts in the Q&A, which he failed to correct.

Here’s the description of the video:  “Warren Perry talked about the Battle of Cedar Creek, which took place in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley in October 1864. The battle was fought between Confederates under General Jubal Early and Union troops under General Philip Sheridan and resulted in a decisive Union victory. Mr. Perry shared pieces from the Smithsonian’s collection related to the battle to illustrate different aspects of the fighting. Smithsonian Associates and the National Park Service hosted this event.”
