Shenandoah 1864 - The Valley Campaigns. Grant and Sheridan met at Charles Town to discuss future Union operations in the Shenandoah Valley. Sheridan already had a plan in mind to defeat Early and had recently learned of Anderson's departure for Richmond with Kershaw's division. Although Early retained Fitzhugh Lee's cavalry, he was now outnumbered by about twenty thousand men. To take advantage of his superior numbers, Sheridan planned a converging attack against Early at Winchester, where Confederates had won previous victories in 1862 and 1863. The main attack would advance west from Berryville. Please note that the gallery samples are smaller and lower resolution so they can be viewed online.
