About Us

Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield is a community-based non-profit corporation dedicated to working cooperatively with landowners and local citizens to protect, restore, maintain, manage, interpret, and promote public awareness of the Cedar Mountain Civil War Battlefield and vicinity in Culpeper County, Virginia.

We have compiled a significant record of accomplishment. Board members and friends of FCMB have been working closely with the American Battlefield Trust (ABT) to restore the historical landscape of ABT’s 152-acre Cedar Mountain Battlefield Park.

Since our founding in March 2003 we have:

-purchased two acres of land along Dove Hill Road
-planted over 2,000 trees to reforest 6.5 acres of land that were forested in 1862
-restored a portion of the old Orange-Culpeper Road (approximately 150 yards)
-installed split-rail fence along the restored portion of the Orange-Culpeper Road
-continued our wildlife habitat management and enhancement
-placed "Civil War Trails" signs on Route 29 at the exit to Route 15 and at the battlefield
-secured an American Battlefield Protection Program grant
-established a monthly guided group tour as well as private tour availability
-worked to expand children's programming through events & homeschool group programming
-established an annual commemoration and living history event that brings to life the stories of soldiers and civilians impacted by the battle
