John White Geary, detail
03/29/1862
Union troops under Colonel John White Geary advanced on the Confederate town of Middleburg in Loudon County, Virginia. Withdrawing Confederate forces made a brief attempt to defend the small town of around eight hundred people but a heady charge of the 28th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry through the streets ended resistance and the Confederate cavalry retreated.. Losses were light on both sides.  (By John Osborne)
