  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Third Winchester.  In the closing stages of the Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864, Phil Sheridan caught up with Jubal Early's retreating Confederate army at Winchester.  He pinned Early's men in place with a frontal assault while three divisions of cavalry approached the lightly defended Confederate left flank.  As the grey line began to buckle in front of Sheridan's infantry, 8,000 horsemen thundered into Early's rear and turned his defeat into a full-scale rout.  Sheridan's success contributed to his eventual appointment as chief cavalry officer in the Army of the Potomac.  The Civil War Trust has saved 442 acres at Third Winchester.
