JACKSON'S FIGHTERS PUSH BACK UNION

While the Confederate military is not doing well in other areas of the country, General Stonewall Jackson continues to roll up impressive victories in Virginia. At Port Republic, the Southern forces were a potent force. Charging into the Union lines and attacking savagely, the Confederates badly stunned the Northern Army. General James Shields has been helpless to do anything as the Confederate opposition fights recklessly and survives. General Jackson attacked at dawn, with the entrenched Union Army ready to meet the assault. The heavy onslaught was too strong for the Federal troops to fight off and retreat was the only answer as General Jackson triumphed again.
