Virginia Civil War 150
The Journey Through Hallowed Ground

The Journey through Hallowed Ground

The Journey Through Hallowed Ground is a trip along Route 15/20 from Gettysburg in Pennsylvania to Monticello in Charlottesville Virginia. Explore historic places on and near this historic route, the Old Carolina Road, a scenic and historically rich landscape that has "soaked up more of the blood, sweat, and tears of American history than any other part of the country," according to the late historian C. Vann Woodward.

The Civil War
Less than 100 years after the Revolutionary War, this area saw some of the fiercest battles of the Civil War as the North and South struggled to gain control of this strategic corridor.
