Join us for an exciting discussion on Mosby’s Rangers! You will visit the graves of the Rangers who fought and died in Middleburg, Virginia.
The daring actions of Mosby’s Rangers made them famous during the Civil War. Their dashing escapades continue to capture and excite the imagination of people today. Middleburg was situated in the center of “Mosby’s Confederacy” and has its own unique history associated with the Rangers. As part of his presentation, historian Eric Buckland will share some of those stories, and more, about the highly effective, and dangerous, group of men formally called the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry, but who prided themselves on being known as “Mosby’s Rangers.” After his presentation, Eric will lead a walking tour through Sharon Cemetery to visit the graves of some noteworthy Rangers. This event is a fundraiser for the Middleburg Museum. Any further donations are welcome and will enhance the efforts to preserve the amazing history in our area.
