The Road to Yellow TavernUnion Gen. Philip Sheridan used the Mountain Road during his 1864 raid toward Richmond. His lengthy column of 12,000 horsemen passed here on the morning of May 11. The troopers spread out to destroy many miles of railroad track at Ashland, Allen's Station (now known as Glen Allen), and Hungary Station. Shortly after passing here, Sheridan's men encountered J.E.B. Stuart's 3,000-man command blocking their route, which brought on the Battle of Yellow Tavern.
