Two Days of Action
— Lee's Retreat —Union cavalry under Gen. Henry E. Davies, Jr. left Gen. Philip H. Sheridan's column near Jetersville on April 5, 1865, on a reconnaissance mission against the Army of Northern Virginia. Davies swept by here, rode through Paineville, and four Miles further on encountered Gen. G.W. Custis Lee's wagon train, which he attacked and destroyed. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee's cavalry in turn attacked part of Davies' command at Paineville and pursued it past this place through Amelia Springs.
