山谷里的雷声
地方性遗产

内战时,西弗吉尼亚州内有一个城市曾由邦联及联邦轮流控管,而它的易手次数竟高达18次!

「山谷里的雷声」(Thunder in the Valley)是西弗吉尼亚州查尔斯城(Charles Town)的年度盛事,旨在纪念查尔斯城的内战常规。内战时期,谢南多厄河谷 (Shenandoah Valley)是一个战略上的重要地区,因为它位在南北主要通道上。查尔斯城曾经易手18次,而另一个位于河谷内的城镇哈普斯渡口则曾经易手8次。

在「河谷里的雷声」上,人们会重演战争现场。 分饰邦联及联邦士兵的人会设立酷似邦联及联邦帐蓬的复制品、重现内战时曾发生的短暂打仗及战争场面。 其中一场表演就是由邦联将军约翰伊恩柏登(John Imboden)所带领的查尔斯城入侵,身穿邦联及联邦士兵服装的人会站在镇上的特定位置,再次重演那次的入侵战役。

虽然表演中的战争巨响比不上实际的战场炮火声,但烟雾、声响及士兵的移动方式仍能让参观者清楚得知入侵时的可能状况。


There is a city in West Virginia that changed control between the Union and Confederate forces during the Civil War 18 times!

"Thunder in the Valley," is an annual event in Charles Town, West Virginia, to help remember its Civil War heritage. During the Civil War, the Shenandoah Valley was a strategic area, as it was on the main travel route north and south. Control of Charles Town changed hands 18 times while another town in the valley, Harpers Ferry, changed hands eight times.

During "Thunder in the Valley," battle re-enactments are staged. People dress up as Union and Confederate soldiers, set up replicas of Union and Confederate camps, and re-create the brief fights and battles that took place during the Civil War. One of the re-enactments is the invasion of Charles Town by Confederate General John Imboden. People dress up as Union and Confederate soldiers and take up positions in the town for the re-enactment.

Although the thunder of battle is not as loud in the re-enactment as it must have been in the real battle, the smoke, noise and movement of soldiers still gives a good idea of what the invasion was like.
