North Carolina At Third Winchester
North Carolina remembers with honor her gallant sons who fought in defense of home and country in the Army of the Valley District, commanded by Lt. Gen. Jubal Early at the Battle of Third Winchester, September 19, 1864. Twenty-one regiments of North Carolina troops served in five different brigades on the field. It was in these woods, and in a battle line extending south to the Berryville Pike, that North Carolina soldiers in the brigades of Brig. Generals William R. Cox, Bryan Grimes, Archibald Godwin and Robert Johnston, under the overall command of Maj. Gen. Stephen D. Ramseur of Lincolnton, N.C., were engaged mid-day in the heaviest fighting of the battle from the opening shots near the Opequon Creek at dawn, to the final volleys near Kernstown at dusk. North Carolinians were engaged from beginning to end in the greatest battle fought in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War.
