The issue of arms to the Marylanders by a woman was a romantic incident of the day, and Col. Jackson (Stonewall) called on her, and thanked her for her services. The officers of the battalion held a meeting and passed the following resolutions:
She forthwith returned to Richmond for clothes and tents, and on June 29 started back with forty-one tents, and enough uniforms and underclothes for 500 men. Mrs. Johnson remained at Harper's Ferry and accompanied the troops when that place was evacuated June 16, 1861. She stayed in Winchester when Johnston's Army awaited Patterson at that place, and stood on the balcony at the Taylor House, waiving her handkerchief at the regiment as the column marched down the street on July 18, 1861, on its way to Beauregard and First Manassas.
