Introduction


In April 1960, with the approach of the Civil War centennial, West Virginia History published an article by Allen W. Jones, a professor of history at the University of Alabama-Montgomery, that listed military events in West Virginia during that conflict. The journal reprinted that article in its 1988 commemorative issue during West Virginiaís 125th anniversary. Below are Jonesís introductory remarks. Following is the list Jones compiled, which is provided in chronological rather than the alphabetical order used by Jones. Corrections for spelling and date also have been made.

Military Events in West Virginia During the Civil War, 1861-1865
By Allen W. Jones

In the voluminous writings on the Civil War, the military activity in the state of Virginia and surrounding border states have overshadowed the numerous and extensive military events which occurred in West Virginia from 1861 through 1865. In this state, which owes its creation to the Civil War, the fighting had a vigorous beginning in 1861 and it continued until the closing months of the war in 1865. This compilation of more than five hundred military events at over two hundred and fifty different places will give some indication as to the extent of the War in West Virginia.

This list of military activities in West Virginia is compiled from The War of the Rebellion: Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies and it does not include any military events which are not described in these documents. The location of each military event is identified by the type of incident and the date it occurred. Standard military terms from the United States Army Regulations and Regulations for the Army of the Confederate States are used to describe the types of military events. The following definitions of terms will aid the reader in using this list of military events:

1. Action: Stresses the idea of active, frequently sharp, offensive and defensive operations.
2. Affair: A fight.
3. Campaign: A connected series of military operations forming a distinct stage in a war.

6. Descent: Incursion; sudden attack; onslaught.
7. Engagement: May be a general encounter, as between armies, or a minor encounter as between subdivisions or outposts.
8. Evacuation: Withdrawal of troops from a town, fortress, etc.
9. Expeditions: A journey for a specific purpose, as a military or exploring expedition: also, the body of persons making such an excursion.
10. Occupation: To hold possession of; to utilize an area or place for a purpose.
11. Operation: A military and/or naval action or mission including movement, supply attack, defense and all requisite maneuvers.
12. Raid: A foray. Originally an inroad or incursion of mounted men. A sudden or rapid attack by an armed force.
13. Reconnaissance: An examination of a territory to gain information of enemy troops, of the terrain, or of resources.
14. Scout: To reconnoiter.
15. Siege: The besetting of a fortified place by an army to compel surrender. A continued attempt to gain possession.
