Early withdrew his army south to Fisher's Hill, near Strasburg, Virginia. Wright withdrew, thinking Early was no longer a threat. Early attacked him to prevent or delay his return to Grant's forces besieging Petersburg. Union troops were routed, streaming through the streets of Winchester. Early pursued and burned Chambersburg, Pennsylvania , along the way in retaliation for Hunter's previous destruction in the Valley.
Also known as the Battle of Cumberland. An inconclusive small cavalry battle in Maryland. Also known as the Battle of Oldfields. Confederate cavalry returning from the Chambersburg burning were surprised in the early morning and defeated by Union cavalry. Grant finally lost patience with Hunter, particularly his allowing Early to burn Chambersburg, and knew that Washington remained vulnerable if Early was still on the loose. He found a new commander aggressive enough to defeat Early: Philip Sheridan , the cavalry commander of the Army of the Potomac, who was given command of all forces in the area, calling them the Army of the Shenandoah.
Sheridan initially started slowly, primarily because the impending presidential election of demanded a cautious approach, avoiding any disaster that might lead to the defeat of Abraham Lincoln.
Also known as Front Royal or Cedarville. Confederate forces under Richard H. Anderson were sent from Petersburg to reinforce Early. Wesley Merritt 's Union cavalry division surprised the Confederate columns while they were crossing the Shenandoah River , capturing about The Confederates rallied and advanced, gradually pushing back Merritt's men to Cedarville.
The battle was inconclusive. Also known as Flowing Springs or Cameron's Depot. Sheridan conducted a fighting withdrawal.
Two Confederate divisions crossed Opequon Creek and forced a Union cavalry division back to Charles Town; Confederate offensive against the city was then repulsed and their advance permanently halted. A minor engagement in which Early attempted to stop Sheridan's march up the Valley. Early withdrew back to Opequon Creek when he realized he was in a poor position for attacking Sheridan's full force. Also known as the Battle of Opequon. Sustaining ruinous casualties, Early retreated from the largest battle in all three of the campaigns, taking up defensive positions at Fisher's Hill.
Sheridan hit Early in an early-morning flanking attack , routing the Confederates with moderate losses.
Early retreated to Waynesboro, Virginia. With Early damaged and pinned down, the Valley lay open to the Union. And because of Sherman's capture of Atlanta , Lincoln's re-election now seemed assured. Sheridan pulled back slowly down the Valley and conducted a scorched earth campaign that would presage Sherman's March to the Sea in November. The goal was to deny the Confederacy the means of feeding its armies in Virginia, and Sheridan's army did so ruthlessly, burning crops, barns, mills, and factories.
As Early began a pursuit of Sheridan, Union cavalry routed two divisions of Confederate cavalry. In a surprise attack, Early smashed two thirds of the Union army, but his troops were hungry and exhausted and fell out of their ranks to pillage the Union camp; Sheridan, in a ride from Winchester, managed to rally his troops and utterly rout Early's men, and the Confederates lost everything they had gained in the morning.
This victory helped Lincoln get reelected. After his missions of neutralizing Early and suppressing the Valley's military-related economy, Sheridan returned to assist Grant at Petersburg. Most of the men of Early's corps rejoined Lee at Petersburg in December, while Early remained to command a skeleton force. His final action was defeat at the Battle of Waynesboro on March 2, , after which Lee removed him from his command because the Confederate government and people had lost confidence in him.
