THE BATTLE OF CEDAR CREEK

Battle of Cedar Creek, Middletown, VA

The Battle of Cedar Creek is perhaps the most important reenactment for Battery C. Not only did the original battery perform valiantly in a vital role that led to the suppression of confederate advances north, but it was also our last engagement as Battery C. Suffering heavy losses, the battery was mustered out of service with many surviving members joing Battery G following the battle. The Battle of Cedar Creek is our "swan song."
