Coming June 8, 2015...
In the Spring of 1865, Federal Major General George Stoneman, commander of the District of East Tennessee, launched a cavalry raid deep into the heart of the Confederacy. For two long months, Stoneman's cavalry rode across six southern states, fighting fierce skirmishes and destroying massive amounts of supplies and facilities. "Stoneman's Raid, 1865" will be presented by Civil War historian, Chris J. Hartley, at 7 PM, June 8, 2015, at the Toy F. Reid Center, 400 S. Wilcox Dr., Kingsport, TN. This event is sponsored by the Tri-Cities Civil War Roundtable. Admission is free, and the general public is cordially invited. For additional information, email Wayne Strong.
