Port Republic Field Trip

Today I posted some pictures from a Civil War tour of several years ago, Cross Keys and Port Republic.

These battlefields are in the Shenandoah Valley southeast of Harrisonburg. Port Republic is a quaint village where the North River and South River come together, forming the South Fork of the Shenandoah River.

The rivers sometimes rise up and flood the village. However, this disadvantage has discouraged development and kept the town small and historic-looking.
