The Civil War Study Group at Lake of the Woods, Virginia, is dedicated to historical research, preservation, and education of the general public on historic events that occurred in Orange County, Virginia, and surrounding communities during the American Civil War. We have no dues, no membership roster, no requirements to attend our meetings or volunteer for any of our historical projects. We hope you'll join us in our mission to tell the story of the Battle of the Wilderness, May, 1864 as well as other tales of the Civil War here in the historic Piedmont of Virginia.

“... the Battle of the Wilderness ...arguably, ... the most important battle in the Civil War.”
         --Edwin C. Bearss, National Park Service Chief Historian Emeritus, 
speaking at Hanover Tavern, Virginia on May 9, 2014
