Kernstown Battlefield and Pritchard House, Winchester

4.2
The Pritchard Farm was the scene of several combats during the Civil War. The most famous was Stonewall Jackson's only defeat at the hands of Col. Nathan Kimball on March 23, 1862. The farm also saw combat during the Second Battle of Winchester on June 13, 1863. C. S. Gen. Jubal Early achieved one of the most lopsided victories of the war over U. S. Gen. George Crook on July 24, 1864. A small engagement occurred several weeks later, as Early's troops pushed the new U. S. commander, Phil Sheridan, back toward Winchester on August 17.

    This is a nice park with historical markers and a nice gift shop. There is also a display of cannons.
