Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Jackson, with his own Division and those of Maj. Gen. A. P. Hill and R. S. Ewell, left Frederick on the morning of September 10 and passing through Middletown and Boonsboro crossed the Potomac at Williamsport, 21 miles north of this. On the afternoon of the 11th, Hill's Division took the direct road to Martinsburg and bivouacked near it. Jackson's and Ewell's Divisions marched to North Mountain Depot on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad seven miles Northeast of Martinsburg, and bivouacked. During the night Brig. Gen. Julius White, Commanding the Union Troops at Martinsburg, about 2,500 in number abandoned the place and retreated to Harpers Ferry. Jackson occupied Martinsburg on the morning of the 12th, passed through it and about noon of the 13th A. P. Hill's Division, in the advance, reached Halltown, 3? miles West of this and went into camp. Jackson's and Ewell's Division following Hill's, encamped near it.
