This is the 21st in a series of annual collectible ornaments.

It was nothing like their early dreams of war. Federal forces had

invaded the Shenandoah Valley, and an army of Southern soldiers had been

dispatched to protect their homeland. Their objective was the Shenandoah

Valley hamlet of Romney, where the Northern army was encamped - but the

Valley weather, not the Yankees, proved to be the fiercest enemy. Less

than a year earlier, these sons of the South had rushed to arms, filled

with romantic notions of gallantry and glory. Now they faced the reality

of life in the field.

Deep snow and bitterly cold temperatures had transformed their march

into a grueling ordeal. Despite the almost unbearable conditions, they

persevered - led by a relentless warrior: General Thomas J. "Stonewall"

Jackson. Determined to do his duty and rid the Shenandoah Valley of

invaders, Jackson drove his troops forward day and night through the

snow, wind and ice. Soon, as if awed by Jackson's sheer willpower as

much as the savage weather, Federal forces retreated without doing

battle. Left behind was a horde of supplies and weapons to be

confiscated by the jubilant Confederates. Months ahead, in the spring

and summer to come, awaited greater glory: Jackson's brilliant,

victorious Valley Campaign. It too would be won by the same

determination and endurance that had enabled Stonewall Jackson and his

"foot cavalry" to win the winter war.
