Benson J. Lossing, Pictorial Field Book of the Civil War. Volume 2., Chapter 16: the Army of the Potomac before Richmond. (search)
was somewhere between the Rappahannock and Shenandoah, and the city of Richmond, with thirty or forty thousand troops, no one could doubt. Neither McDowell, who is at Manassas, nor Banks and Fremont, who are at Middletown, the Secretary of War telegraphed to McClellan, so late as the 24th of June, appear to have any accurate knowledge on the subject. The fact was, that on the 17th Jackson commenced a march of his main body to ward Richmond, leaving a brigade of cavalry and a battery at Harrisonburg, to watch the movements of the Nationals in the Valley, and on the 25th he arrived at Ashland, sixteen miles from Richmond, with about thirty-five thousand men, preparatory to a blow on McClellan's right. Robert E. Lee had succeeded Joseph E. Johnston in command of the Army of Northern Virginia, and was now concentrating his troops to resist McClellan. The posit ion of the Army of the Potomac was now peculiar and unfortunate, and required great skill andy caution in its management. S

d. General C. F. Jackson was killed; and General George D. Bayard, who commanded the cavalry on the left, was mortally wounded by a shell, and died that night. He was only twenty-eight years of age, and was on the eve of marriage. His loss was widely felt. General Gibbon was wounded and taken from the field. Bayard's brigade was famous for good deeds throughout the war. It was distinguished for gallantry in the following engagements before the death of its first leader:--Woodstock, Harrisonburg, Cross Keys, Cedar Mountain, Brandy Station, Rappahannock Station, Gainesville, Bull's Run, Warrenton, and Fredericksburg. After Bayard's death the brigade, was formed into a division, under General Gregg, and served throughout the campaigns in Virginia under Stoneman, Pleasanton, and Sheridan. A portrait of the gallant Bayard, and a picture of the Bayard Badge, will be found in the third volume of this work. Smith's corps, twenty-one thousand strong, was near and fresh, and had not be

l is a high eminence between the Massanutten and North Mountain ranges. The former rises abruptly from the general level near Strasburg, and extends almost to Harrisonburg, a distance of full forty miles, where the range as abruptly terminates. This mountain divides the Shenandoah valley, one fork being called the Luray Valley, own. There we dined, and hiring a light carriage, went on to Strasburg, stopping at Cedar Creek on the way. After making arrangements for taking the stage for Harrisonburg, that evening, we rode to Fisher's Hill, along an excellent road, making the sketch of the bridge seen on page 371. That road crosses a little stream at Fishere Ridge on our right, and the Massanutten Mountains nearer. We supped at Strasburg that evening, and at nine o'clock took passage in a crowded stage-coach for Harrisonburg, fifty miles up the valley. See page 400, volume II.

er to him by the Navy. The following day the squadron returned down the Red River with the exception of the Lafayette, Estella and Arizona, and the ram Switzerland which were left to co-operate with General Banks in case he should require the assistance of the Navy. While in Red River, Lieutenant-Commander Woodworth was sent up Black River, a branch of the former stream, to make a reconnaissance with the General Price, Pittsburg, Estella, and Arizona. These vessels ascended as far as Harrisonburg which was found to be strongly fortified. The works were shelled for some time with little apparent effect and after destroying a large amount of Confederate Army stores, amounting to three hundred thousand dollars in value, the gun-boats returned to Red River, and the Benton and consorts proceeded to Grand Gulf to co-operate with General Grant in any of his plans where the Navy could be useful. Thus within ten days the flag-ship and her consorts, after dismantling the fortifications
, by revealing the presence of a considerable force of the enemy in that region, was probably the reason why McDowell's corps was not sent to the Peninsula with McClellan. After the battle of Winchester, Jackson had retreated up the valley to Harrisonburg, and then struck off to the west. On the 8th of May, he fought a battle of not very decisive results with the Federal forces under Milroy and Schenck, at a place called McDowell, near Bull Pasture Mountain. From this point he marched to HarrHarrisonburg, thence to New Market, where a junction was effected with Ewell's division, which had come from Elk Run Valley. Their united forces amounted. to at least fifteen thousand men. About the middle of May, an order was issued from the War Department at Washington for General Shields to move with his command from the Valley of the Shenandoah and join General McDowell at Fredericksburg. This left General Banks with only five or six thousand men at Strasburg. The Government was warned of
treated up the Valley, pursued by Gen. Banks, to the vicinity of Harrisonburg. Jackson, after holding some days a strong position near Mount is troops a brief rest, and then resumed May 17. his march to Harrisonburg, having ascertained that Banks had fallen back to Strasburg. BeWashington to hasten across the main range of the Alleghanies to Harrisonburg, hardly 50 miles distant, and thus intercept the retreat of JackShields to crush him. There is a direct road from Franklin to Harrisonburg, not absolutely impassable by an army, though it crosses four didirectly down the North Fork, by Woodstock and Mount Jackson, to Harrisonburg. The advance of each was greatly embarrassed by the many streamhe more important of those in front of Shields. Passing through Harrisonburg, June 5. Jackson diverged from the great road leading southwastant, ready to be sent up as required. Fremont pushed out of Harrisonburg at 6 o'clock next morning, June 8. and before 9 his advance w
embarked, and on its way to join you. It is intended to send the residue of McDowell's force also to join you as s speedily as possible. Fremont had a hard fight, day before yesterday, with Jackson's force at Union Church, eight miles from Harrisonburg. He claims the victory, but was badly handled. It is clear that a pretty strong force is operating with Jackson, for the purpose of detaining the forces here from you. I am urging, as fast as possible, the new levies. Be assured, General, position of Jackson's force. Gen. King yesterday reported a deserter's statement, that Jackson's force was, nine days ago, 40,000 men. Some reports place 10,000 Rebels under Jackson at Gordonsville; others that his force is at Port Republic, Harrisonburg, and Luray. Fremont yesterday reported rumors that Western Virginia was threatened; and Gen. Kelly, that Ewell was advancing to New Creek, where Fremont has his depots. The last telegram from Fremont contradicts this rumor. The last telegra
in a dispatch to Grant, as follows: Woodstock Va, Oct. 7, 1864--9 P. M. Lt.-Gen. U. S. Grant: I have the honor to report my command a this point to-night. I commenced moving back from Port Republic, Mount Crawford, Bridgewater, and Harrisonburg, yesterday morning. The grain and forage in advance of these points had previously been destroyed. In moving back to this point, the whole country from the Blue ridge to the North mountain has teen made untenable for a Rebel army. I havuction embraces the Luray valley and Little Fort valley as well as the main valley. A large number of horses have been obtained, a proper estimate of which I can not now make. Lt. John R. Meigs, my engineer officer, was murdered beyond Harrisonburg near Dayton. For this atrocious act, all the houses within an area of five miles were burned. Since I came into the Valley from Harper's Ferry, every train, every small party, and every straggler, has been bushwhacked by the people; many o
