Caught in the Midst of ConflictLife in Beverly changed following the Union victory at Rich Mountain on July 11, 1861. Many of the community's outspoken Southern sympathizers fled south. Some of those who remained resented the hardship that came with Union occupation, although Laura Ann Jackson Arnold, Stonewall Jackson's sister, gladly cared for wounded Federal solders under her roof. Travel was restricted, many townspeople were compelled to board soldiers, and some had their property taken or destroyed by the army.
