This was where the boys of VMI went up against the Northern Army led by a German speaking general. The VMI Cadets fought with ferocity, and some were killed. This is a fairly pristine site with not a lot of hype. It is one of...More

I'm a history museum buff. This is a great place. However, there is a LOT of confusion between this museum and a different Museum. In part because the two are very close to each other (guessing less than a mile) and both are on the...More

While the museum has interesting information, particularly regarding the participation of VMI cadets in the Battle of New Market, several displays were unfinished. War Between the States art collection is interesting, but much husband, the history buff, says that more authentic artifacts are needed.

You may have learned of the Shenandoah Valley Campaign, but it's the only time I heard of the "Field of Shoes." A must see for historians and tourists.

There are 3 motels in the area, I'm sure one of them has a late checkout. New market battlefield museum though is under renovations. It may not be open.
