"Examples of energetic courage"
— 1864 Valley Campaign —As Crook's corps encountered small-arms ﬁre from Gen. Cullen A. Battle's brigade and the canister from the Amherst and Fluvanna batteries, a handful of Federals halted for a moment or turned and attempted to run. Enraged, Crook gathered an armful of rocks and pelted them on their heads in an effort to get them to reconsider their decision and resume the attack. While Crook coaxed the men who "tarried," most of his infantrymen maintained their focus and marched as quickly as possible toward this position.
