The morning of August 30 passed quietly. Just before noon, erroneously concluding the Confederates were retreating, Pope ordered his army forward in "pursuit." Pope, however, found that Lee had gone nowhere and still ordered yet another attack against Jackson's line. More than 5,000 troops under Gen.

.The eagle flag photo  Unforgotten Angels   Let the world always remember,   That fateful day in September,   And the ones who answered duties call,   Should be remembered by us all.  Who left the comfort of their home,   To face perils as yet unknown,   An embodiment of goodness on a day,   When men's hearts had gone astray.   Sons and daughters like me and you,   Who never questioned what they had to do,   Who by example, were a source of hope,   And strength to others who could not cope.
