The Battle of Brandy Station, June 9, 1863

 

 

The Battle of Brandy Station was one of history's greatest cavalry engagements with over 20,000 troops, including 17,000 cavalry, engaged in battle. Although the Union advance was repelled, the overwhelming dominance of the Confederate cavalry was broken.

The Graffiti House (below) served as a field hospital for the South during this and other local battles during the war.  It also served as a headquarters facility for the Federal forces during the winter encampment of 1863-64.  Soldiers from both sides made drawings and signed their names and units on the walls.  Rediscovered in 1993, much has been preserved.
