Monocacy to Kernstown

Into the Shenandoah, 1864

At Monocacy Battlefield in Maryland, we studied Jubal Early's 1864 attack on Washington. At Monocacy, Early's army was delayed by Union troops under Lew Wallace, who were unable to stop him but succeeded in holding him in Monocacy long enough for reinforcements to reach the forts surrounding Washington.
