Gen. Robert E. Lee bivouacked near here on 18-19 June 1863, as he began his invasion of Maryland and Pennsylvania. Part of his Army of Northern Virginia marched north toward Winchester, while Lt. Gen. James Longstreet's corps camped here with Lee. On 13 June, a Union force under Col. Andrew T. McReynolds had evacuated Berryville and marched to Winchester to join Maj. Gen. Richard S. Milroy's division there. Lt. Gen. Richard S. Ewell's corps attacked and defeated Milroy in the Second Battle of Winchester on 13-15 June, thereby clearing the northern Shenandoah Valley in Virginia of Federal forces.
