Tragedy in the Shenandoah Valley


“Tragedy in the Shenandoah Valley- the story of the Summers-Koontz Execution” by Robert H. Moore II

From the cover: “Try to meet me in Heaven where I hope to go.” These poignant words were written in the summer of 1865 by twenty-year-old Confederate Sergeant Isaac Newton Koontz, in a letter he penned for his fiance just hours before his death at the hands of a Union firing squad in the heart of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Though Koontz and Captain George Summers had been pardoned for their theft of Union army horses, their executions were carried out with no trial, no judge, and no jury. 126 pages
