Battle of Dranesville

Early on December 20th, 1861, a Confederate foraging party was sent north of their lines around Richmond, protected by troops under the command of General J.E.B. Stuart. Meanwhile, federal troops under General Edward O.C. Ord were sent south from the Union lines in order to disrupt Confederate activity in northern Virginia. The two forces met along the Georgetown Pike near Dranesville.
