Bolivar Heights in May

view from Bolivar HeightsHarper's Cemetery

These photos are from a field trip in May. We were studying the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. The northern part of the Shenandoah changed hands so frequently we call this the "Yo Yo War."

Dr. Poland moves at a fairly fast pace so I only got a few photos of this scenic area. That's one reason I chose to visit Bolivar Heights when we passed through Harpers Ferry recently. Also, it was a chance for Frank to wander around the old cemetery and admire the view.

The view of Lockwood House (below) shows the east side of the building, facing the cemetery.
