Note
  • Includes introductory text and short Federal and Confederate accounts of the action by BG Torbert, USA, Chief of Cavalry for Sheridan, BG Custer, USA and Jedediah Hotchkiss, topographical engineer for the Confederate Valley Army
  • This map is a composite of Jedidiah Hotchkiss map #28 from the Official Records and two USGS topographic maps from the 1980s. Current terrain is represented by the overlay
  • "This was one of the incidents that convinced Sheridan that the Confederate cavalry had to be dealt with and led to the Battle of Tom's Brook on October 9th." Accounts of the day seem to indicate inaccuracies and contradictions. There was no mention of casualties
