Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart fought a series of running cavalry battles while screening Robert. E. Lee's infantry march through the Blue Ridge following the Battle of Antietam in September 1862. The last fight was here. Stuart escaped but got a "close shave" when a bullet clipped his moustache. Trails sign is located at Amissville Baptist Church.
