Early's division, much jaded, was fifteen miles off near Winchester, and could not possibly reach me before the afternoon of the next day. I had reason to believe that Meade's whole army was in our front, and having but two divisions to oppose him I decided to send Early up the Valley to Strasburg and New Market, while I marched the other two divisions up the Page valley to Luray, the route pursued by Jackson in 1862 in his campaign against Banks.
