Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield, Inc. is dedicated to working cooperatively with landowners and local citizens to restore, protect, interpret, and promote awareness of the Cedar Mountain Civil War Battlefield. At Cedar Mountain, “Stonewall” Jackson led his troops into battle on August 9, 1862 against Nathaniel Banks’ corps of John Pope’s new Army of Virginia. Over 3,000 men were killed or wounded that afternoon and evening in the shadow of Cedar Mountain during the deadliest day in Culpeper’s history. Culpeper’s native son, Major General A. P. Hill, sealed the Confederate victory when his division reformed Jackson’s crumbled line and led the charge that turned the tide of the battle. For Hill and the other Culpeper men engaged, this was a personal battle to liberate their homes, friends and family from the Union occupation. With the support of local citizens and the Civil War Trust, we work to ensure that this battle and the valor displayed by both armies will never be forgotten.
