Shortly before 5 A.M. on Wednesday, 24 August 1864, Lt. Col. John Singleton Mosby with about 300 Confederate Rangers and two field artillery pieces opened fire from the west side of the Accotink Creek valley on a Union stockade located in Annandale. The bombardment lasted over one hour. Three times the demands to surrender were refused by Capt. Joseph Schneider, Co. C, 16th New York Cavalry in command of approximately 170 men. Mosby suddenly broke off the attack and withdrew west on Little River Turnpike, probably to avoid Federal reinforcements.
