Union General Phil Sheridan reports to General George Crook on January, 1865, Confederate movements in western Virginia and the Valley, including the Staunton area.

Maj.-Gen. CROOK,
Cmdg. Department of West Virginia:

January 28, 1865.

Harry Gilmor is not as far down as Moorefield, but is on headwaters of Lost River, trying to unite the Second Maryland Battalion and McNeill's and Woodson's companies. My information is that Rosser's division will go east of Blue Ridge, and Lomax come into the Valley about Staunton, and this movement may have commenced. The report of the Beverly affair has not yet reached me.

Maj.-Gen., Cmdg.
