"In Hampshire county, before the commencement of the war, there were two organized and uniformed companies of infantry; one known as the Frontier Riflemen, of which Robert White, afterward colonel of the Twenty-third Virginia cavalry, was captain, Elias L. Irvin first lieutenant, Job N. Cookus second lieutenant, and Daniel T. Kellar third lieutenant; and the other the Hampshire Guards, John B. Sherrard captain, D. W. Entler first lieutenant, and Felix D. Heiskell second lieutenant. The first-named company had about 96 men, and the last about 80. In May, 1861, both of these companies were ordered by the governor of Virginia to report to Col. T. J. Jackson, then commanding at Harper's Ferry. Soon afterward the Thirteenth Virginia regiment of infantry was organized, with A. P. Hill as colonel, and these companies were mustered into that regiment as Companies I and K."

"In entraining at Piedmont Station the regiment became divided, ony half of it reaching Manassas with the rest of the brigade in time to assist in the battle."

"Sometime in the wet darkness of July 19–20, Hill and his soldiers arrived at Piedmont. Everything was bustle and confusion at the station as eager troops waited to board the one train running shuttlelike between Piedmont and Manassas. Disappointment then blunted enthusiasm: Elzey's brigade was ordered to remain at Piedmont as depot guard until all other troops had departed."

"At twelve-thirty, the cars ground to a halt at Manassas Junction."

"The 13th Virginia, the smallest of Elzey's regiments with only 550 men present, was ordered to leave the brigade and proceed to the right so as to guard Manassas and the lower fords of Bull Run from possible Federal flank attack."
