Rutherford's Farm comes after Cool Spring. Ramseur, newly promoted to division command in the previous 60 days, gets his nose bloodied. If he had just stayed on the defense as ordered, he would been in a much better position. He got aggressive and it bit him. He loses a significant amount of casulaties that his division and Early's force certainly could have used later in the campaign. Ramseur was very personally embarassed by his division's performance.
