"We Shelled the Yanks and the Yanks Shelled Us"
— 1862 Valley Campaign —On March 28, 1862, just 2 days after his appointment to serve as cartographer on the staff of Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, Jedediah Hotchkiss reported the Valley Army's position at Narrow Passage Creek (four miles north of here) to be "unfavorable for defense." Acting on that advice, Jackson moved his infantry to Rude's Hill, two miles south of Mt. Jackson and directed Col. Turner Ashby to hold "the line of Stony Creek."
