George H. Gordon, From Brook Farm to Cedar Mountain, Chapter 3: through Harper's Ferry to Winchester—The Valley of the Shenandoah. (search)
th the single purpose of decrying the commander of the Army of the Potomac, General McClellan had been carefully and methodically preparing his vast army for the field. I have referred to the onward movement ordered by the President on the twenty-second of February, with General McClellan in command of the grand army of the Potomac, organized into its several divisionary corps, under McDowell, Sumner, Heintzelman, Keyes, and Banks. Halleck was in charge of a department at the West, and Fremont in charge of the Mountain Department. It is with Banks's corps that our interest lies. While the others were to move on their devious way up the peninsula to Yorktown, Williamsburg, the Chickahominy, and the James, we were to move up the valley of the Shenandoah, closing this gateway to the enemy. Our force was as follows: We had the brigades that wintered with us at Frederick, commanded by Generals Hamilton, Williams, and Abercrombie. This force was increased by the division formerly c

vision; Milroy and Schenck, with 6,000 men (in front of General Edward Johnson), the advance of Fremont, who was preparing to join them with a force which would give him a movable column of 15,000 me See Allan's Campaign in the Valley of Virginia, pp. 68, 69, with citations. Of these forces, Fremont's were widely separated; Banks's were concentrated. So for this reason and for those already gs brigade contained about 1,500 men out of Jackson's 6,000. The Federal strength, according to Fremont's official report, under Milroy and Schenck, was 6,500 men; although not more than 2,500 of thede up his mind that Schenck was not only very strongly posted, but that he was within reach of Fremont's main body, and that he might have to fight a superior force without the aid of Ewell's divisient his moving to either place, and might also lead to the recall of the reinforcements sent to Fremont from Winchester (Blenker's division).

ted his strength. Their lowest estimate placed the combined strength of the enemy at twenty thousand. See Jackson's Valley Campaign, p. 111, in which the total of Jackson's command is placed at 15,000 or 16,000. In the pursuit of Shields and Fremont, the battles of Cross Keyes and Port Republic, the march of Jackson to unite with the Army of Virginia, we did not participate; therefore I leave them with no other allusion. On the thirty-first of May, the enemy at Bunker Hill, Martinsburg, and Charlestown was apprised that Fremont from the west and McDowell from the east were closing in upon his rear. In one week after our fight at Winchester, Jackson, with his whole army, turned southward in flight. The effect of our retreat upon the country was startling. In Massachusetts the people were aroused by a proclamation. Hardly had the thousand camp-fires begun to glow around the thousand carriages upon the banks of the Potomac, at eleven o'clock at night of the twenty-fifth of M

essed ourselves to instant preparation for an active and important duty. The three corps of the new army were to be commanded by Generals McDowell, Banks, and Fremont. Our corps, no longer the Fifth of the Army of the Potomac, was to be known as the Second of the Army of Virginia, and was to be commanded by General Banks. Pope, at the date of this promotion, was Fremont's junior in rank,--a fact which the latter considered so offensive to his dignity that he refused to take the command assigned him; therefore Siegel was substituted, and Fremont retired, carrying with him everything but our regrets. General Pope's department covered the region which Fremont retired, carrying with him everything but our regrets. General Pope's department covered the region which holds, east of the Blue Ridge, the great battle-fields of the war. The troops were organized and posted to cover the city of Washington from any attack in the direction of Richmond, to assure the safety of the Shenandoah Valley, and to operate upon the enemy's lines of communication in the direction of Gordonsville,--thus hoping to
