Cedar Creek Battlefield and Limestone Mine

Seen from the Valley Pike near Middletown, VA
Behind the battlefield on the right you can see a mining operation - note the big white hill of limestone. Plans to expand the mining have preservationists concerned. See the Civil War Preservation Trust's pages on Cedar Creek.

Since Cedar Creek is barely outside our county, I have visited the area many times. See my 2007 reenactment photos: Noble Steeds, Civil War Infantry, and Dressed Up for 1864.
