Artist's Description

Charles S. Roller founded Augusta Male Academy in 1874. In the Civil War, he served in Confederate General J. E. B. Stuart’s cavalry and during Reconstruction, he was elected to the Virginia General Assembly, the state’s legislative body. He introduced military instruction and discipline to his students by 1879, and changed the name of the school to Augusta Military Academy in 1890. AMA was the first of several secondary-level, military academies in Virginia, and one of the first schools in the country to adopt a Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program. The school had a major educational, social, and economic impact on this area of the Shenandoah Valley for over 100 years.
