The warm weather of spring spelled an inevitable return to combat for Civil War soldiers, requiring much time drilling and training. Experience this often overlooked, yet significant aspect of a soldier’s life as the Valley Guards recreate a camp of instruction of the 10th Virginia Infantry. Listen and watch as the officers of this living history group train and instruct their subordinates in drill and manual of arms. Walk through their camp and talk to these soldiers about their duties and ways they prepared for war. Talk to park rangers and hear how the war impacted the lives of the Settle family, who lived at Mount Bleak house.
