A Stop at Hupp's Hill

We had doctor appointments in Winchester early this morning and Frank made a dental appointment for 3:10 PM in Mt. Jackson. We ate lunch and did a little shopping but still had an hour to kill before the dentist so we stopped in Strasburg to visit the Stonewall Jackson Museum at Hupps Hill.

The picture on the right shows earthworks across from the museum.

The museum interprets Jackson's Valley Campaign plus it has exhibits on Black and Native American participants in the Civil War. It also has children's exhibits, a research library, and a trail.

P.S. I wrote additional text on my Romney to Delaplane page. I struggled with this because I didn't take many notes on the tour because the rain could ruin my notebook.
