As it maneuvered against Lt. Gen. Jubal A. Early's Army of the Valley, Maj. Gen. Philip H. Sheridan's U.S. Army of the Shenandoah marched south from Halltown, reaching Berryville on 3 Sept. 1864. Finding part of Brig. Gen. George Crook's corps pitching camp just east of here, Maj. Gen. Joseph B. Kershaw's division attacked with limited results. During the night, Early brought up his entire army but by daylight found the Federal position too strongly entrenched behind its eight miles of earthworks to assault. Early withdrew after dark to Winchester where Sheridan defeated him in the Third Battle of Winchester on 19 Sept. 1864.
