Little History at link. Yes, I have a category for that. Oh, yeah, oh, yeah! lol Always did like my History.

Aiming to destroy a vital section of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in what is current-day West Virginia, 150 years ago this week in the Civil War a raid led by two Confederate generals — William Jones and John Imboden — was one of many by the South seeking to block Union attempts to deliver troops, weapons and supplies to their forces in the war theater.

Confederate raids continued almost uninterrupted during the second half of the war, disrupting the Union supply effort while prolonging the conflict.
