Stafford's Confederate Year

Indelible Mark

After the summer of 1862, Virginia’s troops, including those from Stafford, fought in General Robert E. Lee’s vaunted Army of Northern Virginia. That army left an indelible mark on American military history and our national fighting traditions. Zealously fighting for family, home, county, and state, as well as the fatally flawed Confederate nation, they defeated and then held off superior Federal forces with undeniable strategic advantages. They also earned their opponents’ respect and admiration. (Picture is of the Virginia Monument in Gettysburg.)
