US XIX Corps Trenches

About 12 Years ago the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation had the vision and took the leadership to preserve land on which the US XIX Corps had built extensive earthworks on the Cedar Creek Battlefield. Until now the Foundation has hosted a limited number of organized tours of the site. However, our partnership with the National Park Service has enabled us to offer regularly scheduled tours of these well preserved earthworks that are tucked away on 123 acres of Foundation property. What makes these trenches unique is the US forces had to use both sides of them to defend themselves. Take the tour to learn about “reversing the trenches” and why this was done. The NPS offers regularly scheduled guided tours conducted by rangers knowledgeable in the construction and use of earthworks and how they were used here on the Cedar Creek Battlefield. The historical man-made environment combined with the natural environment make this tour a favorite among many. Tours are conducted each Saturday morning during summer months and during special events in the fall.
