It's been a few days since I have made a post. I have been visiting a close friend who lives in Middleburg, Pa., which is less tham an hour north- northwest of Harrisburg, Pa.
Since I live in Lynchburg, Va., I pick up Interstate 81 North at Staunton, Va. and follow it north to Harrisburg. This stretch of highway is a Civil War fanatics dream. It goes right up the Shenandoah Valley, thru places like Strasburg, New Market, Winchester; There is Stonewall Jackson's HQ, The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, Cedar Creek Battlefield, just to name a few. As you get farther north there are exits to Harpers Ferry and Antietam, then in Pennsylvania there is Chambersburg, which the Confederates burned; From there it is only 30 miles to Gettysburg, and then up to Harrisburg, Pa.
Many of you may not be aware of this, but there is a new national Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pa. I visited it last summer and it is a nice Museum. It is still new and they are expanding the number of exhibits each year. It's worth a trip if you are near the area.
