In the fall of 1864, Sheridan's victory at Cedar Creek assured the ruin of Early's reputation. It also helped President Lincoln get re-elected.
This is a beautiful area. Be sure to visit Belle Grove, which is not far from I-81 where it meets I-66 near Strasburg, Virginia. Union General Philp Sheridan used the house as his headquarters.
