A book-signing by the authors of the new book containing the complete roster of the Independent Loudoun Virginia Rangers, will be held at the Lovettsville Museum on Saturday, Feb. 25.
The Loudoun Rangers were the only Union military unit that fought in the Civil War from present-day Virginia. The roster, compiled by historian Lee Stone, contains the rank, physical description, service record, burial site, references, and other information about each of the more than 250 members.
The book, “The Independent Loudoun Virginia Rangers:
The Roster of Virginia’s Only Union Cavalry Unit,” also includes a comprehensive account of the formation and military activity of the Rangers in the foreword and appendix by Edward W. Spannaus, vice president of the Lovettsville Historical Society.
The signing will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the museum, 4 E Pennsylvania Ave. The book is available for purchase at the museum for $12.
