Loudoun Heights Marker

I've visited the site of the Battle of Loudoun Heights with Dr. Poland's Civil War class. There is a historical marker there that I did not photograph until last week when Marie and I were in that area. It starts out:
Union Maj. Henry A. Cole’s 1st Maryland Cavalry was camped here on Loudoun Heights on 10 Jan. 1864 when Confederate Maj. John S. Mosby and Capt. Benjamin Franklin “Frank” Stringfellow attacked before dawn with about 100 mounted Partisan Rangers.
For the entire text, see Loudoun Heights Clash on HMDB.
