The Valley Campaign by Bradley Schmehl ~ The Shenandoah Valley, May 20th, 1862. After a long march through the Shenandoah Valley, Taylor and his troops joined Jackson and started their band for a waltz on May 20th, 1862. After a glance at the frolicking men and a contemplative suck on his lemon, Jackson came forth with, “Thoughtless fellows for serious work..” Despite his original concern, Jackson was soon pleased to discover that the Louisiana Brigade could do a lot more than just dance. The Union flag is in the scene.
