Battle of Mountain Run
Stevensburg Road--Site commemorating the Battle of Mountain Run on June 9, 1863. Roughly 400 Confederates held off 4000 Union cavalry near here. The main engagement that day was fought up the road at Brandy Station. The small memorial to the left was placed in honor of Will Farley killed during the battle. He was a well-known "scout" in the Confederate Army.
