Within a few weeks after Robert E. Lee drove away the Federals who had besieged Richmond in 1862, he extended his theater of operations northward. Stonewall Jackson, the hero of the Shenandoah Valley but an enigmatic failure around Richmond, moved his half of the army into Orange County to counter the emerging new threat posed by John Pope’s “Army of Virginia.” Pope’s draconian measures against civilians outraged the Southerners and gave them extra cause to “suppress” him, as Lee put it.

In December of 1777, George Washington and his army limped and straggled into their winter encampment at Valley Forge, a force that had failed to withstand the force of the elite Queen’s army twice in battle at Brandywine and Germantown two months earlier. Not only was Washington forced to give up the colonial capital of Philadelphia to the British, his own leadership had come under question in the high ranks of the new American government and its armies.
