The Confederacy Loses Harper's Ferry Too.
In an attempt to lure the Union Northeastern Virginia Army away from Manassas, Johnston's Shenandoah Force left its Strasburg (Warren VA) encampment and moved by rail to Clarke VA, the region just northwest of Manassas. Meanwhile, Beauregard's Army of the Potomac re-entered Manassas region from the south, but more slowly, on foot.
The Union did not take the bait. Ignoring Johnston, it remained at Manassas, first assaulting and taking the fortified depot, then turning to face Beauregard. A second Battle of Manassas ensued:
To the north, McCall's Command forced the understrength Bee Command to give up Harper's Ferry without a fight.
The Confederacy has now lost both Harper's Ferry and Manassas:
Miraculously, the Grafton Militia, what little is left of them, still hold Taylor WV.
Union Morale 98, VPs 267, Combat Losses 3125
Confederate Morale 115, VPs 448, Combat Losses 5310
