Battle of Shepherdstown and Blackhorse Ford, September 18, 1862

Following the end of the Antietam Campaign, both sides paused to rest and reorganize. During this time the Confederate Army spent most of its time around the Bunker Hill area (now in West Virginia). A number of small skirmishes took place but there were no serious battles. During this period, President Lincoln relieves General McClellan of his command of the Army of the Potomac and replaced him with General Burnsides. The Army of the Potomac moved east toward Fredericksburg and Lee followed with the Army of Northern Virginia. Jackson's forces were included. On November 28, 1862, Jackson slept in a home in Mt, Jackson. This was the last night he would spend in the Shenandoah Valley while he was alive.
