About this Item
- Plan of the Battle of Winchester, Va. Fought September 19th, 1864.
- Detail of Winchester, Va., and environs includes roads, railroads, creeks, mills, fords, and the locations of the Confederate Signal Station, "Millroy's Forts," Milltown, Kernstown, Stephenson's Depot, and Greenwood Church.
- The Confederate line, with Early commanding, is in front of Winchester. Union forces under Gen. Sheridan are shown east of the town, while the Union cavalry is located to the north at Stephenson's Depot. The Union forces were able to push Early's Confederates back toward the town and to the south, but were unsuccessful in their attempt to flank his right, thereby allowing him to retreat up the valley toward Strasburg.
