‘Draw saber, gallop, charge!’
's order, and the Marylanders hurled themselves on the advancing foe and drove him back.
This was the last cavalry charge made in the army of Northern Virginia. William C. Price
, Company E, was killed.
His was the last blood shed in the war in Virginia
As General Munford
well said in his farewell address to the Marylanders, ‘You spilled the first blood of the war in Baltimore
and you shed the last in Virginia
did not surrender at Appomattox
None of the cavalry did. They marched away to Lynchburg
In ten days Colonel Dorsey
got an order to move up the valley to Salem
When they arrived at Cloverdale
in Botetourt county
, they received this parting address from Munford
, ‘the bravest of the brave.’
