The Cover: Major General Philip H. Sheridan gallops past a line of cheering Union soldiers in this heroic rendition of his storied, 20 mile ride from Winchester, Virginia, to the battlefield at Cedar Creek, on October 19, 1864. Sheridan's dramatic appearance infused his army with renewed spirit, turning a Federal retreat into a victory that ended Confederate control of the Shenandoah Valley.
