The Battle of Cedar Creek was fought on this day in 1864. This conflict was the culminating battle of the Shenandoah Valley Campaigns of 1864 during the American Civil War. Confederate Lt. General Jubal Early launched a surprise attack against the encamped army of Federal Major General Philip Sheridan, across Cedar Creek, northeast of Strasburg, Virginia. During the morning fighting, seven Federal infantry divisions were forced to fall back and lost numerous prisoners and cannons. Early failed to continue his attack north of Middletown, and Sheridan, dramatically riding to the battlefield from Winchester, was able to rally his troops to hold a new defensive line. A Federal counterattack that afternoon routed Early's army.

I'm wondering if that used to be called "Middletown Cemetery"? I have Keith Rocco's Cedar Creek print Rally On The Battery and he calls it Middletown Cemetery.
