Abstract:
This is the second installment of a series examining the little studied final raid upon the South's war resources planned and lead by Union Major-General George Stoneman.

The raid also presented the somewhat unique occurrence of pitting Southerners against their own community, in that Stoneman's forces contained many Southern citizens who had sided with the Union cause for reasons specific to this region.
