1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaigns

Here’s Professor Edward Ayers, formerly the President of Richmond University, giving a typically outstanding presentation on the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. This was part of the 2017 Nau Center Signature Conference held at the University of Virginia.

The video’s description reads, “Edward Ayers talked about the 1864 Shenandoah Valley campaigns during the Civil War. He spoke about the strategic importance of the valley to both the Union and the Confederacy and discussed the battles and raids that took place in the valley during that year. He also described the interactions in the valley between Union troops, Confederate women, and freed slaves.”
