Jackson's Valley Campaign

Nathaniel Banks

General George McClellan is threatening Richmond with a huge army. A key component of McClellan's grand strategy is to have his army outside of Richmond reinforced from the North by General McDowell. With the combined armies, McClellan can crush any confederate army.

General Stonewall Jackson is ordered to create a threat against Washington to keep additional union forces from joining McClellan. Jackson has a tiny, inexperienced army, but he will conduct a brilliant campaign of manuever and ultimately rescue Richmond.
