Inscription: Crossing this school site, the Loudoun and Berlin Turnpike once intersected the Leesburg & Snicker�s Gap Turnpike at a junction just ahead known as Heaton�s Crossroads. On Saturday, July 16, 1864, Gen. Jubal A. Early�s Confederate army passed through this crossroads as it retired west of the Shenandoah Valley after its daring attack on the northwestern defenses of Washington.
