Essay: The battle of Front Royal-The setting
The Battle of Front Royal was fought on the 23rd day of May, 1862. This epic battle was between the Union forces and the Confederate army. The two armies fought this battle in the small town of Front Royal, Warren County, Virginia and proved to be a major victory to the Confederate army.
It was also in this battle that history was made in the United States, in that two cavalries from the same state were fighting against each other. In a way, this was the battle where ‘brother fought against brother’ (www.angelfire.com, 2001).
