On July 11th 1864 Confederate forces under General Jubal Early
advanced from Frederick, Maryland and commenced skirmishing
on the outskirts of Washington. In great haste the Union defenders
summoned local militias, postal workers and invalids, eventually
totalling about 20,000 men. Seeing this superior force, Early
withdrew on July 12th.
