The Shenandoah Valley. May 8th 1862
Jedediah Hotchkiss, “Stonewall” Jackson’s cartographer, has led the general to the spur of Sitlington’s Hill to show him the deployment of the Union’s infantry. The men look down over the town of McDowell, which is crowded with Feds. Shortly, McDowell is to become a small victory for Jackson – a victory that was desperately needed by the South.
