  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Thoroughfare Gap. Lee had taken a great gamble in allowing Jackson's forces to maneuver so far away from the rest of his army. James Longstreet's 25,000-man corps brushed aside James Ricketts' 5,000 man division at Thoroughfare Gap on August 28, 1862. Longstreet's forces were thus able to reach the Second Manassas battlefield and deliver a crushing flank assault on August 30, 1862.
