Note
  • "This map set is designed to supplement reading material and to be taken to the field. It consists of three parts: an outline of the battle including a glossary and a list of references, the maps and overlay, and an operations matrix [for both Union and Confederate units]."
  • Various phases of the engagement are represented using different map sheets depicting the terrain the way it was in 1862. The overlay map depicts current twentieth century surroundings (ex: US route 250 and other routes including a Methodist church, the VFD, etc.)
  • The engagement near McDowell employed approx. 10,000 soldiers total and involved forces under the command of Gen. Stonewall Jackson (Confederate) and Gens. Milroy and Schenck (Union). This engagement has been variously defined as either a prelude to or the first or second battle of Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign and was Jackson's first victory as a commander of an independent force
