The Shenandoah Valley is a strip of land in the United States that holds a significant part of the history of this country. Located in Virginia, it is a roughly 140-mile northern section of the Great Valley of Virginia.
During Colonial times, the area was a popular location for trappers and hunters, with many European settlers moving into the region not long after 1750, where they used the mountains to cultivate rich logging and mining industries.
There are pivotal moments in the history of the United States that take place here, including many conflicts during the American Civil War, where the Confederacy came close to Washington D.C., threatening the capital of the Union.
The Confederate military in the area was led by General Thomas Jackson, who history knows better as "Stonewall" Jackson. His strategic sense, battle strategy, and instincts frustrated Union armies, using the Shenandoah Valley as a way to more easily transport troops and supplies. Despite Jackson's death in 1863, the Confederacy effectively held the valley for the majority of the Civil War, only ceding the area a month before the end.
During the present times, Shenandoah is a National Park featuring more than 200,000 acres of nature with wildlife and trails. You can hike the trails at the National Park or learn about the great and varied history the region offers.
