Excerpt from Report of the Secretary of War, Confederate States of America, War Department, Richmond, January 3, 1863
While these triumphs were being won, another large army of the enemy was advancing through Piedmont Virginia, towards its central lines of railroad communicat... ion, under the command of General Pope. He had disgraced the character of an officer by braggart beasts, and' outraged humanity and civilization, by stimulating and sanctioning desolating ravages and vindictive cruelties by his unscrupulous troops. General Jackson, dispatched with a moderate force to stay his pro gress, administered a speedy rebuke to his arrogant vaunts, and gave an earnest of coming chastisement by defeating, in the sharp-engage~ ment of Cedar Run, his advanced division under General Banks.
