Warren County’s 175th Anniversary Planning Committee, in conjunction with the 75th Anniversary of the Warren County Courthouse, is happy to announce the unveiling of a commissioned painting by renowned artist Mort Kunstler. The work titled “On to the Shenandoah” is an action packed painting that captures Stonewall Jackson in front of the old Warren County Courthouse, pushing his troops through the streets of Front Royal to gain control of the strategic bridge over the Shenandoah River to cut off any Union advance to Winchester. This is the first print of a two part series honoring the contributions of Front Royal and Warren County to Stonewall Jackson’s Valley Campaign.
The Planning Committee for Warren County’s 175th Anniversary is happy to announce that the additional merchandise commemorating the celebration is now available. In addition to the two flags that are available, citizens will now be able to purchase Anniversary lapel pins, ornaments, and limited edition Matchbox trucks. All merchandise is available for purchase through the Warren County Treasurer's Office in Suite 800 of the Warren County Government Center.
