Union bloodied at Battle of Ball’s Bluff

On this day (Oct. 21) in 1861, a 1,700-man Confederate force, under the command of Gen. Nathan G. Evans, decisively defeated a Union force of about the same size, under the overall command of Gen. Charles Pomeroy Stone, in the Battle of Ball’s Bluff (also known as the Battle of Leesburg or the Battle of Harrison Island).
