The McCormick Civil War Institute (MCWI), as a result of the generosity of Dr. David and Mrs. Melanie Miles, was able to have three students work during the summer on a special research project, “‘Outlived the Odium Put Upon them by the F.F.V.’s’: Union Veterans Who Resided in the Shenandoah Valley at the Time of the 1890 Census.” Close examination of these records sheds a bit of light on Unionist sentiment in the Shenandoah Valley at the time of the Civil War and also the roles Union veterans (both native to the Valley and those who moved here after the conflict) played in the postwar era in the region. On Tuesday, July 28, at noon, the MCWI, including its director, Jonathan A. Noyalas, ’01, M.A., and students Nikki Roland, Jessica Kronewetter and Jay Richardson, hosts a Zoom session to share some of the preliminary findings. This is a multi-year effort and our work this summer just scratched the surface, but we turned up what we at least think is some rather interesting and important information. Questions?
