After the Battle of First Manassas, General Stonewall Jackson was given command of the Confederate Army in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Greatly outnumbered by the Union army in the Valley, Jackson began to look for ways to attack the Union Army and its support. His attention fell on Dam No. 5 on the C&O Canal. This program focuses on the Confederate Army’s exciting and often humorous attempts to destroy Dam No. 5 in December, 1861.Date: Friday, December 16, 2011
