Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862. (search)
Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862. Address delivered before the Virginia division, A. N. V., October 31st, 1878, by Colonel William Allan, late Chief of Ordnance, Second ( Stonewall ) corps, A. N. V. [Published by unanimous request of the association]. After the disastrous termination of Braddock's campaign against Fort Duquesne, in the summer of 1756, Colonel George Washington, to whom was entrusted the duty of protecting the Alleghany frontier of Virginia from the French and Indians, established himself at Winchester, in the lower Shenandoah Valley, as the point from which he could best protect the district assigned to him. Here he subsequently built Fort Loudoun, and made it the base of his operations. A grass-grown mound, marking the site of one of the bastions of the old fort, and Loudoun street, the name of the principal thoroughfare of the town, remain to recall an important chapter in Colonial history. It was this old town that Major-General T. J. Jackson ente

I hope Mr. Peabody will send the papers of assignment to you, for I would prefer your taking charge of the matter to any one else. As I stated to you before I shall be as much obliged to Mr. Peabody for his kind intentions to the college in the event of its receiving nothing as though it had; for the moral effect will be the same, and it will mark his approval of a college founded by Washington and evince his wish for its success. But if the endowment of the college could be enlarged it would add greatly to our usefulness and to our means of aiding the destitute youth of the South. We shall have this year over fifty beneficiaries, and if we could afford it would have more, so great is the poverty of the people. On this account I hope the fund will be realized. Mrs. Lee and my daughters unite with me in kind regards, in which Colonel White joins, And I remain, most truly

n the history of one. Come with me to my own capital, where Virginia has essayed to rouse the emulation of her children by erecting statues to the worthiest of those who, in the past, have made her famous. Challenge them all, face to face, with the sentry's cry, and one answer alone will come from bronze or marble--a Rebel, --while crowning her Pantheon sits the world's synonym for every grace and virtue that ennobles man and adorns office — the arch-rebel of the eighteenth century — George Washington! A hundred years and more ago, when, as Pitt said, even the chimney-sweeps in London streets talked boastingly of their subjects in America, rebel was the uniform title of those despised subjects. This sneer was the substitute for argument, which Camden and Chatham met in the Lords, and Burke and Barre in the Commons, as their eloquent voices were raised for justice to the Americans of the last century. Disperse rebels was the opening gun at Lexington. Rebels was the sneer of G
