      Description: After marching north through the Shenandoah Valley from Lynchburg, the Confederate army of Lt. Gen. Jubal A. Early side-stepped the Federal garrison at Harpers Ferry and crossed the Potomac River at Shepherdstown into Maryland on July 5-6. On July 9, 1864, a makeshift Union force under Maj. Gen. Lew Wallace attempted to arrest Early´s invading Confederate divisions along the Monocacy River, just east of Frederick. Wallace, joined by Ricketts´s Division of the VI Corps that had been rushed from the Petersburg lines, was outflanked by Gordon´s Division and defeated after putting up a stiff resistance. Hearing of Early´s incursion into Maryland, Grant embarked the rest of the VI Corps on transports at City Point, sending it with all dispatch to Washington. Wallace´s defeat at Monocacy bought time for these veteran troops to arrive to bolster the defenses of Washington. Early´s advance reached the outskirts of Washington on the afternoon of July 11, and the remaining divisions of the VI Corps began disembarking that evening. Monocacy was called the ``Battle that Saved Washington.´´
      Result(s): Confederate victory

    • The marriage record has her name as Mary Jane Crawford, other records have it as Mary Jane Clevenger. The census records for 1860, 1870 and 1880 list a Sarah Clevenger in the household of Isaac Florea as "mother-in-law". It is possible that May Jane's father was a first husband of Sarah and Sarah may have married a Clevenger later.
