A little more about our program...

The topic: “Mosby’s Raids in Civil War Northern Virginia” The most famous Civil War name in Northern Virginia—other than General Lee—belongs to Colonel John Singleton Mosby, the Gray Ghost. His early life characterized by abuse of childhood bullies, a less-than-outstanding academic career, and even a brief incarceration, Mosby stands out among nearly one thousand generals who served in the war. Even though Mosby was opposed to secession, he joined the Confederate army as a private in Virginia, and quickly rose through the ranks. He became celebrated for his raids and was a feared partisan guerrilla in the North and a nightmare for Union troops protecting Washington City. Come learn more about Mosby and his raids.
