Woods Company H — Died: Isaac Sterling Company I — Captured: Richard L. Mass, Merriman Winters 44 COBB’S LEGION CAVALRY Little Washington The next morning, Thursday, November 6, 1862, Hampton’s brigade was sent to cover the front at Sperryville, with advance posts at Gaine’s Cross Roads and Amissville. After a skirmish at Gaine’s Cross Roads, where the Federals were beaten back by Cobb’s Legion Cavalry, Stuart commended the troopers for behaving with gallantry and for routing the enemy.

The gunners had their lanyards in hand and were waiting for the horsemen to come into effective range when Hampton became aware of the danger. He frantically fashioned a white flag and waved it. What could have been a serious disaster was averted. That night, Saturday, September 13, 1862, as Hampton’s men spread out along the ridge of South Mountain, they could see thousands of Federal campfires in the valley east of the mountain. The next morning, Stuart moved Hampton’s brigade nearer to the Potomac at the south end of South Mountain to guard the road next to the river.

Close-quarters combat with sabers and pistols soon followed. According to Union reports, thirty-seven Confederates were killed in the skirmishing. Hearing a rumor that evening that Federal troops were in their rear, Stuart ordered Hampton to withdraw his men westward along the Flint Hill Road.
