Fishers Hill in Shenandoah County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Pegramís Division Collapses
ó1864 Valley Campaign ó
Soon, the 13th Virginia as well as Pegramís other regiments gave way. The collapse resulted not only from the general panic that Crookís assault created, but also because of Union Gen. George W. Gettyís attack against Pegramís front. Getty wrote that Pegramís men “poured in one tremendous volley Ö then broke and ﬂed in the wildest disorder.” With both Ramseurís and Pegramís divisions routed, the remaining Confederate divisions at Fisherís Hill fell like dominoes from west to east, and the Federals secured the “Valleyís Gibraltar.”
