Jackson's marching soldiers filled this narrow road from shoulder to shoulder making it slow and tedious work for any mounted officer to pass along the column. One of Stonewall's aides, Captain James Power Smith, attempted to catch up to the General at the head of the troops. Smith was greeted with good-natured jeers and taunts as his horse struggled in the dense thickets on the roadside. "Better hurry up or you'll catch it for getting behind," "Have a good breakfast this morning sonny?" "Tell Old Jack we're all a-comin'. Don't let him start the fuss till we get there!"
