October 19th 1864 Battle of Cedar Creek After an audacious night march, Jubal Early’s troops surprised Union troops near Cedar Creek and drove first one, then another, then a third Union Corps from the field. As Early paused to reorganize and his hungry men feasted on the food and supplies left by the retreating Union forces, it gave the Federals time to regroup. The rest is history and not good for our side…defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.
