Next Presentation

JOIN US ON TUESDAY, MARCH 26, 2019 FOR A PRESENTATION BY SARAH K. BIERLE ON  "From Virginia to California: VMI, the Battle of New Market, and the Post-War Lives of Eight Cadets."

The Battle of New Market, fought May 15, 1864, was the only time in American military history when college student body fought as a independent unit in a full battle. For the young men from Virginia Military Institute (VMI), life would never be the same after their participation in a decisive victory for Confederate General John Breckinridge's gathered army in the Shenandoah Valley. But what happened to the cadets after the battle? This new presentation traces the lives and experiences of several cadets through their days at VMI to the battlefield, and to their later careers as successful citizens who moved to California.
