The Shenandoah Valley

By III William G. Thomas

Abstract

The Shenandoah Valley was called the Great Valley of Virginia in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Its geography linked together North and South along the Border, and it served as a network for trade and migration. The Valley became a strategic objective for both Federal and Confederate forces in the Civil War, and later a broad avenue for industrial development, railroads, mining, lumbering, and tourism
