Visit three Mosby sites on horseback

The Mosby Heritage Area Association in Atoka, Va,. is offering a tour May 5 of three of Col. John Singleton Mosby’s Civil War sites as seen from the back of a horse.

Mosby, considered a terrorist by Union officials, was a Confederate hero on horseback who conducted surprise raids on Union camps. The area in which he and his partisan rangers rode was known during the Civil War as Mosby’s Confederacy and included Loudoun, Fauquier, Clarke, Warren and part of Prince William counties.

The two-hour walk and trot guided ride begins at 10 a.m. The cost is $45 for Heritage members; $50 for non-members. The fee includes lunch; bring water for your horse.
