The Battles of Aldie, Middleburg, and Upperville

The Battles of Aldie, Middleburg and Upperville, Virginia were hree large cavalry actions that were part of the Gettysburg Campaign. Alde was fought on June 17, 1863, Middleburg on June 19, and Upperville on June 21. They would become one of the largest cavalry actions involving Jeb Stuart’s forces of the Confederate cavalry and Alfred Pleasanton’s title cavalry during the entire war.

The battles were fought because Robert E. Lee was moving into a second invasion of the North, leaving the Culpepper area with Gen. Ewell in the lead, followed by Gen. A.P. Hill who would be disengaging from the Fredericksburg. They crossed west of Culpepper, Chester Gap, and moved north, down the Valley to move across the Potomac with Gen. Longstreet’s Corps coming on the east side of the Blue Ridge Mountains and his corps was to cross at Ashby’s Gap and Snickersville Gap, both prominent gaps in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Union Gen. Joseph Hooker got word of the movement, Win- chester would fall on June 14 from Ewell’s 30,000 man corps and Washington became increasingly concerned as to what Lee’s intentions were going to be, and so word went out to the Federal cavalry to find out and bring back intelligence to matter what the cost might be.

Our guide will be Kevin Pawlak. the Director of Education for the Mosby Heritage Area Association and a Licensed Battlefield Guide at Antietam National
Battlefield. Kevin also sits on the Board of Directors of the Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association and the Save Historic Antietam Foundation. He is also on the advisory board of the George Tyler Moore Center for the Study of the Civil War at Shepherd University, his alma mater.
