Description

Photograph showing Company A of the 2nd Virginia Volunteer Regiment after returning from service during the Spanish American War. It is dated December 15, 1898 and was taken by Hugh Morrison.

The company consisted primarily of men from Woodstock and Shenandoah County. It was led by Captain John F. Magruder (standing center). Standing at the far right is Hugh Kneisley the company's 1st Lieutenant. Samuel Clower is pictured standing at the far left. The other individuals are unidentified.

The photograph was taken near the railroad tracks on what was known as the "Commons" in Woodstock. This open space was traditionally reserved for community events. In 1904 the Woodstock School was built on a portion of the property and the land was divided by W. Court Street. The center house at rear was demolished but the one on the left and right still stands.
