MAPPING THE VALLEY:
JEDEDIAH HOTCHKISS & STONEWALL  JACKSON, 1862
A Hanover Tavern Speaker Series presentation by
DARA GREEN
Resource Protection Associate,
Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation

 

Jedediah Hotchkiss served as a staff officer to Confederate general Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. His specialty was mapmaking, and his topographical skills proved to be crucial to Jackson’s success during his famous Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1862. Thanks to Hotchkiss’s maps, Jackson always had ample knowledge of the geographic setting within which he was operating and a good appreciation of the terrain he would use against the enemy.
Dara Green assists with land acquisition projects within the historic Shenandoah Battlefields district through grant writing and GIS mapping. She received her BA in History from Virginia Tech, where she studied 19th century Virginia.
