Loudoun County was a major location during the Civil War, with its proximity to the Potomac River, Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley. To explore Civil War history, take the John Mosby highway (named after the Gray Ghost Confederate Colonel himself) to The Red Fox Inn and Tavern which remained as headquarters and a hospital for the South during the war. Injured soldiers were cared for in the tavern rooms located in the basement and the current pine service bar was made from a field-operating table used by a surgeon who served in the cavalry. One of the most notable battles during the war was the Battle of Balls Bluff in 1861, which was the result of an inexperienced captain mistaking a line of trees for a line of tents, which started the attack.
