Spring 2010 UChapter Tour – Virginia Commonwealth University

From March to April, our UChapters Tour visited 28 colleges and universities across the US and Canada. The goal was to use the songs of Damion Suomi, Andy Zipf and Lauris Vidal to inspire conversations on the the themes of Pain, Hope and Community. We met hundreds of people and heard dozens of stories. Here’s a taste of our time at the Virginia Commonwealth University/University of Virginia event in Richmond, VA.

Lee’s Endangered Left: The Civil War In Western Virginia, Spring Of 1864

Lee’s Endangered Left: The Civil War In Western Virginia, Spring Of 1864

In the spring of 1864, Ulysses S. Grant as general-in-chief of the Union armies devised a plan of concerted action to bring down the Confederacy. As part of that strategy, Grant aimed to destroy General Robert E. Lee’s supply source for his Army of Northern Virginia in western Virginia and to use military activity there as an extended turning movement to threaten Lee from the west. In this outstanding study, Richard R. Duncan offers a riveting overview of these military operations we well as their impact on the civilian population, shedding light on an often overlooked chapter of the Civil War in Virginia.
