Cross Keys revisited.
After leaving off such an important detail, it was necessary to revisit the battlefield to wrap up some lose ends. Mainly the so called ambush of the 8th New York infantry guided under the hand of General Stahel.
Attempting to make an attack on the Confederate right, the anticipation of such an attack was a block by Confederate General Trimble and his division.
Lying down behind a wooden rail fence, Trimble's men were not seen until they were called on to fire at the 8th New York at 50 yards.
The thing I have to ask is 'I wonder why Stahel did not send out skirmish line to find where the Confederate Army was located'?
Does anyone have any idea about this?
In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.
