|Pender, there are no markers around the Battlefield.
I use this for my help. sword.
There supposedly is a marker where Jackson pulled his scabbard
The march was simply a fiasco due to communication from Jackson. The more I read about him the more I see him as an a$$ hole as much as I hate to say it. That almost over rides his brilliancy. He never had independent command again after this battle.
If you ever decide to come this way (Staunton), I will give you a tour of Battle of Piedmont, Cross Keys, Port Republic, Waynesboro, Cedar Mountian, Lexington, New Market.
Get a cup of coffee from the CrackerBarrel and then head out. The only place I won't go to without wheels is The Battle of McDowell. I can't make a 3 mile hike up a trail anymore.
Oh, and thanks for the casualty numbers.
