"This morning ninety-six gallant and chivalrous looking volunteers from Luray, Page County, under the command of Capt. Young, left in the cars, and Capt, F. W. M. Holliday's Rifle Mountain Rangers will leave in a few days."

The Richmond Daily Dispatch, 8 June, 1861 - From Winchester, Va., 4 June, 1861

"our company, the Shenandoah Riflemen, left for Winchester this morning. They number between sixty and seventy men, all of whom are quite expert with the gun, and good marksmen."

The Richmond Daily Dispatch, 22 June, 1861 - From Tom's Brook, Shenandoah Co., 18 June, 1861

"While his regiment was preparing to leave with the rest of Johnston's army, Holliday's company and Company I, the Rockbridge Confederates, were ordered to remain behind on detached duty."

Stonewall Jackson and Winchester, Virginia, by Jerry Holsworth

"As the brigade was then in line, the Thirty-third was on the left and was at that time the extreme left of our army. On its right the Second, Fourth, Twenty-seventh and Fifth – the latter, as I understand, a little detached from the balance of the brigade. (The Fourth was in line behind Colonel Pendleton's batteries, and the Twenty-seventh just in rear of it; so that the right centre was four deep. - J. W. D.)"

"Two of the largest companies of the Thirty-third had been left in the Valley. The eight companies present were from Shenandoah, Page, Hampshire and Hardy (five were from Shenandoah, and one each from Page, Hardy and Hampshire); both the latter companies were small, about fifty men, so that deducting the sick and absent, there were only about 400 men in action. I was the only regular field officer in the regiment; but there was a Captain Lee, a splendid man and gallant officer, who had been temporarily assigned to the regiment and acted as field lieutenant colonel; he was in the charge, struck in the breast with a piece of shell and fell at his post mortally wounded, and died soon afterwards."
