page 3 of 3

Monument, WarrentonHere we visit Buck Marsh, Front Royal, Marshall, and Warrenton. Mosby's men did not surrender at the end of the war but merely disbanded. Later in life Mosby lost popularity for a while because he supported U.S. Grant's presidential campaign and went to work for the government. Eventually though, he became a legendary figure, riding through the mists of memory in the hills of Virginia.
