Battle of Opequon (Third Winchester for some of you) 150th

I missed out on the 150th activities held for Opequon, or Third Winchester, held yesterday.  And spent much of today otherwise doing work.  Very sorry to have fallen down on my Sesquicentennial tweeting.  I do hope you’ve been able to follow the events by way of Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park’s Twitter and Facebook feeds.  One of the postings yesterday provided a sense of the attendance:

There are more events scheduled as the 150th anniversaries of those important clashes in the valley play out this fall.  Next up – Fisher’s Hill on Monday!
