What’s the News? Conversations

Conversation #1: Hunter’s Raid
RT: 1:00

Person A:
You hear about that Yankee General Hunter? Him and his men—thousands of them—are coming through Virginia. They’re sacking towns. They’re burning everything.

Person B:
Our boys are trying to slow Hunter down, I hear. But the Federals got across the river and burned everything. Months of stored food. Those poor towns . . . now they’re only fit for owls and bats.

Person C:
I hear Hunter’s marching near 25 miles from here. Young men all gone off to fight. How can we hold off the Yanks? What if they give guns to our slaves?

Enslaved person:
I hear that Massa Lincoln’s army’s coming through and beating those rebels! If they get close to here, maybe I will run off and join up with them. Get me a uniform and a gun.

Museum Summary
In June, 1864, Union General David Hunter led 18,000 soldiers through Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. They destroyed everything in their path. Many enslaved Africans fled with Hunter’s troops, including Washington Ferguson, Booker T. Washington’s stepfather.
