The worst news possible had just come in a telegraph. "Army routed. Stop. Retreating down the valley and arcoss the Rappahanock. Stop. Will require reinforcements. Stop. R.E.L."
Why in Heaven's name had he gone along with the plan to attack the Yankees at Manassas with all the forces in Virginia? Now Richmond could be open to attack and no one would be able to stop it. The man who made that plan would pay, for sure, but now was not the time to consider that. President Davis slumped in his chair, knowing now that there was a long fight ahead. If only the folks across the pond would lend a hand.

Morning of September 28 - The Camp of the Army of Northern Virginia, near Staunton
Gen. Jackson *riding up*: Good Morning General. Are you enjoying your laruels today?
Gen. Lee: If by laruels you mean coffee, then yes *laughs*.
Gen. Jackson: The Almighty has truly blessed us and only sucha short time after so great a defeat. I think the Lord was testing us and now perhaps the fruit is ripe.
Gen. Lee: Ripe? Sir, your mysticism never ceases to amaze me... explain.
Gen. Jackson: General, what we must do is crush the enemy at Manassas junction and then invade the North, take the war away from our homes and into the Yankee businessmen's.
Gen. Lee: The other general that proposed that to the President is now on his way to the Trans-mississippi and you, sir, are far to valuable for that. I suggest you keep that to yourself for now.
Gen. Jackson: Politics will not interfere with the Lord's work. We have won a great victory and are sure to have many more if we can follow them up, take Washington, Philadelphia, tear up the B&O railroad. Its just a matter of timing, thats all, just timing...
