Winchester was the largest city in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War. This strategic crossroads repeatedly drew armies together in battle. Today markers for several battles may often stand side by side.

 

 

Winchester is also the site of the Winchester National Cemetery and Stonewall Confederate Cemetery (part of Mount Hebron Cemetery), the final resting place of several thousand Civil War soldiers.
