Battle of Belle Grove or Cedar Creek
Owing to its convenience to the valley highway and its adaptability for a headquarters, Belle Grove House was seldom without a military tenant nor its grounds without an army. Dead to sentiment, ruthless war had already made a waste of these ornate grounds in which its warrior lord had once taken such pride.."
James E. Taylor, An Artist with Sheridan Up the Shenandoah in 1864
