September 22, 1864
General Philip Sheridan with 30,000 Federals defeated General Jubal Early with 11,000 Confederates. Driven in route from Winchester September 19, by Sheridan's overpowering numbers, Early formed his line of battle across the brow of this hill, overlooking Tumbling Run, and prepared to check Federal pursuit. The 4-mile front was too long for the badly outnumbered Confederates to hold. On the 22nd, Sheridan concentrated Generals H.G. Wright's and W.H. Emory's corps against Early's right and center, while General G. Crook's corps swung to the west and worked its way along the eastern slopes of Little North Mountain. Passing around the Confederate's flank, Crook's troops attacked and overwhelmed Lomax's command. General J. B. Rickett's division swept forward and the Confederate line disintegrated. Early suffered his second defeat in 3 days.
