near Mount Jackson, Virginia

Mount Jackson, Virginia was a was a strategic point in the Shenandoah Valley. It was on the paved Valley Pike about halfway between Winchester and Staunton. It was also the terminus of the Manassas Gap Railway, which, at least for the first part of the war, ran eastward out of the Shenandoah Valley to connect with the rest of the Confederate rail network at Manassas.


This led to the placement of a major Confederate Hospital at Mount Jackson which operated for most of the war.
