On On September 19, 1864, Major General Phillip Sheridan led the VI and XIX Corps in an advance toward Winchester along the Berryville Pike, crossing Opequon Creek east of the town. The Union's initial progress was slowed, allowing Major General Jubal Early to gather his forces to confront the main assault. Both seasoned Union and Confederate divisions engaged fiercely for hours. Eventually, Early's Confederate forces were pushed back toward Winchester, consolidating their defenses around the northern outskirts of the town. In the late afternoon, the VIII Corps and Union cavalry successfully flanked the Confederate left, prompting Early to order a general retreat. This Union triumph marked the beginning of a series of defeats for Early's army in the Shenandoah Valley, from which it would not recover. The Battle of Winchester was notable as the largest and most costly engagement in the region during that time.


The Third Battle of Winchester, also known as the Battle of Opequon or Battle of Opequon Creek, was an American Civil War battle fought near Winchester, Virginia, on September 19, 1864. Union Army Major General Philip Sheridan defeated Confederate Army Lieutenant General Jubal Early in one of the largest, bloodiest, and most important battles in the Shenandoah Valley. Among the 5,000 Union casualties were one general killed and three wounded. The casualty rate for the Confederates was high: about 4,000 of 15,500. Two Confederate generals were killed and four were wounded.
