On 22 May 1865, after the Civil War ended.Capt. George W. Summers, Sgt. I. Newton Koontz,and two other armed veterans of Co. D,7th Virginia Cavalry, robbed six Federalcavalrymen of their horses near Woodstock.The horses were returned the next day to the 192d Ohio Volunteer Infantry at Rude's Hill. Despite assurances that all was forgiven, Lt. Col. Cyrus Hussy, temporarily commanding the 192nd, later ordered the men arrested. The others escaped, but Summers and Koontz were shot without trial here on 27 June. Thirty years later, Capt. Thomas J. Adams and friends erected the nearby monument to commemorate their deaths.
