Phillip Greenwalt
"If this Valley is Lost" the Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864

Sweep the Shenandoah Valley “clean and clear,” Union General-in-Chief Ulysses S. Grant ordered in the late summer of 1864.

His man for the job: Maj. Gen. “Little Phil” Sheridan, the bandy-legged Irishman who’d proven himself just the kind of scrapper Grant loved. Grant turned Sheridan loose across Virginia’s most vital landscape, the breadbasket of the Confederacy.

This month, we welcome author and National Park Historian Phillip Greenwalt, co-author of Bloody Autumn: The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864.

Our speaker is a full-time contributor to Emerging Civil War, a public history-oriented platform for sharing original scholarship related to the American Civil War.  He is also the co-founder of Emerging Revolutionary War (www.emergingrevolutionarywar.org).

Phill is currently a Supervisory National Park Ranger of the Shark Valley District of Interpretation and Visitor Services of Everglades National Park. Prior to his current position, Phill spent seven years as a historian with the National Park Service at George Washington Birthplace National Monument, and Thomas Stone National Historic Site.  He started with the National Park Service as a historical interpreter intern at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park.  He has also had the honor to be on official details for the Sesquicentennial of the surrender at Appomattox Court House, and the Bicentennial of the Battle of Fort McHenry and the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner.

In addition to Bloody Autumn, our speaker is also the co-author with Daniel Davis of, Hurricane from the Heavens: The Battle of Cold Harbor, and Calamity in Carolina: The Battles of Averasboro and Bentonville.  With Rob Orrison, he is currently working on the first book in the newEmerging Revolutionary War Series, due out next year.

Phill graduated from George Mason University with a M.A. in American History and also has a B.A. in history from Wheeling Jesuit University.
