From February 1862 until early June, Brig. Gen. Stonewall Jackson’s 6,000-man force occupied several Union commands to keep them out of the fights for Richmond. The Battles of Cross Keys and Port Republic ended the campaign. Jackson defeated Frémont at Cross Keys, and Brig. Gens. Henry Bohlen and Julius Stahel suffered heavily on the land later owned by Peter Svenson. The next day, Jackson was victorious at Port Republic. (Map Graphics ©DLF Group 2018)
