About the Art: Major General "Stonewall" Jackson had achieved his goals in his first operation as commander of the Valley District of the Department of Northern Virginia: the capture of Romney. The Federals were reinforcing their strategically placed garrisons and making plans to move on the Confederate Army in Northern Virginia. But General Jackson had struck first, planning to take out Federal garrisons one at a time. The weather had been balmy when Jackson's army of 8500 men had broke camp on New Year's Day, heading out on the Northwestern Turnpike from Winchester. But the weather began to change, and soon there were snow flurries in the air. In just days the region would be blanketed by a major snow storm. Undeterred by the weather Jackson pushed forward, attacking Bath (present-day Berkeley Springs) and driving out Federal forces stationed there. His troops overran the B & O stations at Alpine, Sir John's Run, and Great Cacapon, burning down the bridge located there. Word quickly spread to the Federals that General Jackson was on the move and was now at Unger's Store. General Lander in charge of the Federal garrison at Romney decided to evacuate the town rather than face Stonewall's advance.
Romney was now in Jackson's hands as he placed his four brigades in defensive positions around Romney. The Stonewall Brigade was sent to Mechanicsburg Gap and other routes along the South Branch including the strategic bridge at Romney.
