Ramseur and Grimes Disagree
— 1864 Valley Campaign —You are standing near the extreme left ﬂank of Confederate Gen. Jubal A. Early's army's thinly stretched line of infantry guarded by Gen. Stephen D. Ramseur's division. Throughout the day on September 22, 1864, Confederate observers utilized the large lookout tree to your left to keep an eye on Union Gen. Philip H. Sheridan's movements. While many Confederates watched to their front (north) throughout the day, Gen. Bryan Grimes—a brigade commander in Ramseur's division—looked to the west, toward Little North Mountain.
