Anniversary Tour of the Battle of Tom’s Brook

On October 8 and 9, 1864, thousands of cavalrymen and artilleryman converged on the ridges above Tom’s Brook in Shenandoah County, Virginia. On the anniversary weekend 152 years later, we will gather on those same ridges to learn more about the men and events of the controversial Battle of Tom’s Brook and the famous “Woodstock Races.”

In our touring van we will travel a 60-mile route off the beaten tracks through the famous farmland that made the Shenandoah “the Breadbasket of the Confederacy” We will use historic roads following in the hoofprints of the cavalry columns. Stops will include sites connected with The Burning in the days before the battle, the battlefield of October 9, 1864, and the Woodstock Races.

Tour Information Illustration 55

Guide: A former teacher, Bill Miller has led battlefield tours for the National Park Service, the U.S. Marines Combat Development Command, the Civil War Trust, the University of Virginia Continuing Education Program, the Civil War Society and many other groups. His book on the Tom’s Brook operations was published in June 2016.

“One of the most educational and enjoyable days I have ever spent on a Civil War battlefield was when Bill Miller was our guide at Tom’s Brook. His expertise and his engaging personality made it an extremely memorable occasion. Bill’s explanation of the events of the battle and especially his depiction of the colorful personalities involved made everything come vividly alive.”
Marshall Krolick, Chicago Civil War Round Table

“In April 2015 and a year later in April 2016, some friends and I had the opportunity to have Bill Miller guide us over the Tom’s Brook battlefield. Although I had previously visited the grounds with other tours, Bill’s was the best.  The sites he selected for his presentations of the various actions in the battle were excellent.  His analysis and clear explanations of both the phases and leaders in the fight gave me a much better understanding of the battle.  They were great tours.”
Horace Mewborn, author of From Mosby’s Command

“Bill Miller doesn’t just tell a story, he paints a picture. I was with him at Tom’s Brook, and I saw Custer salute Rosser. If you want to ‘hear the guns’ and ‘see the elephant’ spend some time with Bill.”
Joe Wisehart, Chicago Civil War Round Table
