— Gettysburg Campaign —Nearly three weeks after the Battle of Gettysburg, and in the wake of a sharp fight near Front Royal at Wapping Heights (Manassas Gap) on July 23, 1863, Confederate troops from Gen. Richard S. Ewell's corps withdrew to the Page Valley. On July 25, Gen. Robert E. Rodes' division camped near Bethlehem Lutheran Church (otherwise known as Brick Church) and along Pass Run. Gen. Edward "Allegheny" Johnson's division camped near Rodes, while Gen. Jubal A. Early's division spent the night at Mt. Jackson.
