Crossing the Massauutten range of mountains at a gap, a wide road leading from the North Fork valley of the Shenandoah eastwardly over the mountain into the valley of the South Fork afforded Jackson a splendid opportunity, if we were unguarded, of taking us in rear. This gap-road, before leaving the mountain on the eastern side, diverges into two branches, one of which crosses the South Fork of the Shenandoah at Columbia Bridge, the other at Massanutten town, and thence to Luray.

The following are the points our army occupied on this line, which was in length thirty and one-third miles: The two divisions of the Second Corps were at Little Washington; General Siegel, with the First Corps, was at Luray; and General McDowell, with the Third Corps, at Warrenton. We were concentrating on this base. There, in that summer season, scenes of rural loveliness became desolate and unsightly by the occupation and destruction that ever marks the devastation of armat Culpeper Court House, sent word to Banks to move his corps to that town, and at the same time notified Siegel at Sperryville, to which place he had marched from Luray, to move to the same point.
