Pope's Retreat August 19, 1862


Some escaping slaves and Pope's Army of Virginia pulling back across the Rappahannock River on August 19, 1862.  My ancestor in the 82nd Ohio was in the rear guard of this movement.  The Second Battle of Bull Run was coming soon for him. In Hiram's Honor, this event is on page 78.   For more on this famous photograph, click here.
