Brandy Station

On June 9, 1863, Union horsemen surprised General J.E.B. Stuart, C.S.A. in an early morning attack that culminated in the largest cavalry engagement of the war. Tour 1 begins with an inside tour of the Graffiti House and includes stops at Auburn–to view the site of Stuart’s Grand Review, Buford’s Knoll, the St. James Church area, and Fleetwood Hill (3 hours).

Tour number 2 follows the movement of the Union troops that crossed at Kelly’s Ford and includes and overview of the Battle of Kelly’s Ford as well as stops at the ford, Hansborough’s Ridge, Stevensburg, and the site of Will Farley’s mortal wounding (2.5-3 hours). These two tours can be combined for an all-day tour. For groups of 35 or more, it may be possible to include an inside tour of a historic home.

“I spent a week in Virginia attending Civil War seminars and touring sites. My all-day Culpeper tour with Virginia Morton was the highlight of my trip. I highly recommend her book and tours.”
—Dr. William Sheehan, Santa Barbara, CA
