The Last of the Loudoun RangersThis is the site of the last Civil War engagement in Jefferson County and one of the last fights involving Col. John S. Mosby's Rangers. It also marked the end of the Independent Loudoun Rangers, a small cavalry unit recruited in 1862 from Loudoun County's Unionist residents to serve as "border police" and scouts for Federal forces. The opposing rangers had clashed once before at Point of Rocks during Gen. Jubal A. Early's Washington Raid in July 1864.
