Feb 26 2020 Call Out the Cadets The Battle of New Market

The Battle of New Market, fought May 15, 1864, was the only time in American military history when college student body fought as a independent unit in a full battle. For the young men from Virginia Military Institute (VMI), life would never be the same after their participation in a decisive victory for Confederate General John Breckinridge's gathered army in the Shenandoah Valley. But what happened to the cadets after the battle? This presentation traces the lives and experiences of several cadets through their days at VMI to the battlefield, and to their later careers as successful citizens who moved to California.

Sarah Kay Bierle serves on staff at Central Virginia Battlefields Trust, is the managing editor for Emerging Civil War’s blog, and hosts an annual Civil War conference in California. A graduate from Thomas Edison State University with a B.A. in History, she has spent the last few years researching, writing, and speaking about the American Civil War. Her fourth book "Call Out The Cadets" - a nonfiction study on the Battle of New Market released in Spring 2019. Sarah is currently pursuing research on Confederate artillery officers, Civil War civilians, and the Union II Corps.
