As Fremont approached Harrisonburg on the 6th of June, Jackson left it. Instead of taking the road via Conrad's store to Swift Run Gap, as he had done when retreating before Banks in April, he now took the road to Port Republic, where the branches of the main Shenandoah unite.

Again, as early as June 6, General Sherman telegraphed General Thomas to prepare a cavalry raid for Opelika, Alabama; but when it was ready to move he was afraid to let it start, and telegraphed to General Rousseau, at Nashville, June 20th, . . wait and see what Forrest will do. And on the 29th June to the same officer: Do not start until we know something definite of General A. J. Smith.
