The Virginia Civil War Trails program has released a new, free map and guide to more than 80 of these sites.  The brochure, entitled “Shenandoah: Avenue of Invasion”, includes close-up maps of cities and regions in which multiple sites exist along with a text summary of the war in the Valley. Sites with important Civil War history are marked by interpretive waysides telling the stories of what happened and why, who was involved, and why it was important. Since its inception, the program has installed more than 80 interpretive waysides throughout the Valley. Civil War Trails maps are ably supplemented by roadside directional signage making it easy to create impromptu side-trips or plan one’s own driving itinerary. Also included in the map is contact information for the Civil War Trails organization and for Valley tourism offices.

More info is available here. The map can be seen as a pdf. file too, here.
