McNeill's Rangers

We started our 2010 tour in Middletown. After introducing the topic of partisan rangers and the extent they were used by both sides in the Civil War, Professor Poland led a car caravan across the mountains to Moorefield, West Virginia, home of John McNeill. McNeill and his son Jesse became well known as leaders of a Confederate cavalry unit known as McNeill's Rangers.
