Save the Very Center of Cedar Mountain
What Henry Hill is to First Manassas or The Angle is to Spotsylvania Court House, Crittenden's Gate (or "The Gate") is to the Battle of Cedar Mountain. It was here that Stonewall Jackson came close to being killed or captured; Jackson's staff made a headquarters of sorts in an overseer's cabin next to The Gate; General Charles S. Winder went down mortally wounded at The Gate; and thousands of Confederate soldiers moved past The Gate en route to positions around the famous Wheatfield.
Now we have an opportunity to save 10 vital acres of the Cedar Mountain battlefield on its 150th anniversary. This new tract abuts land that was preserved by the Trust and it fills the fourth corner of The Gate site. Join us as we work to save this historic battlefield land.
