Piedmont Station

23 10 2008

My friend David Langbart recently made a trip to Delaplane, VA, and snapped the below photos (he uses some kind of newfangled camera: the image is transferred to something called film, which is then developed into negatives, from which prints are made, whatever any of that means).  Situated about 25 miles southeast of Winchester, in 1861 Delaplane was known as Piedmont Station.  This is where elements of Joe Johnston’s Army of the Shenandoah boarded train cars bound for Manassas Junction, beginning on July 19th with the brigade of Thomas J. Jackson.

I’m not sure if any of the structures were there in 1861.  Here’s a link to some Piedmont Station/Delaplane markers courtesy of Historical Marker Database.

All views are east toward Manassas.
