The Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield had a historian at the depot to greet and talk with our guests. As they traveled on the Trolley to the Cedar Mountain Battlefield they were provided an overview of the situation in 1862 and how the armies of 'Stonewall' Jackson and John Pope came to Culpeper. They arrived on the Cedar Mountain Battlefield at one of it's most critical locations, the "Crittenden Gate." Another historian greeted them on the field and walked on the historic Culpeper Road to a vista where most of the battlefield was viewed. Our historians briefly recounted key moments during the fight and pointed out where these events took place. It is important to note that the ground has changed very little and our guests had many of the same views experienced by the soldiers 152 years ago. The tour moved over mostly level ground, total walking about 1/3 of a mile.
 After the Battlefield, the trolley traveled to Prince Michel Winery and then made its way back to the depot.
