Cedar Creek

The 1st Vermont Brigade fought at Cedar Creek on October 19. 1864. The battle began with an attack by the Confederates on the Union’s  camps. The 8th Vermont Infantry Regiment, a component of the 1st Vermont Brigade, was commanded by a Colonel Stephen Thomas, who had previously commanded the 8th Vermont. The 8th Vermont Infantry Regiment along with two other regiments, advance towards the attacking Confederates and engaged in brutal hand-to-hand combat. This engagement allowed the remaining Union forces to retreat and join forces 1 mile away. As the casualties of the battle reduced the brigade’s  effectiveness, Colonel Thomas  withdrew his Brigade. The 8th Vermont Infantry was the last unit to pull back.
