The Army Historical Spring Staff Ride 22-21 May
Attention AHF members! The Army Historical Foundation will be conducting its Spring 2016 staff ride on 21-22 May. This two-day trip will focus on the final retreat of Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia following the conclusion of the Petersburg campaign, the pursuit by the Union Army of the Potomac, and Lee’s eventual surrender at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, on 9 April 1865. This ride was originally scheduled for 3-4 October 2015 but was postponed due to inclement weather.
