Turner Ashby, a native Virginian and a cavalry commander who distinguished himself under Stonewall Jackson during the Valley Campaign of 1862, was killed in action on June 6, 1862. Not a noted disciplinarian, Ashby was nevertheless a fierce and determined fighter, and Jackson is reported to have mourned his loss deeply.
