Article source[edit]

The text of this article is virtually verbatim from the public domain NPS source cited in the References, which is a problem according to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2009-04-13/Dispatches. I have added the appropriate citations, but a general rewrite is in order. I will put this on my to do list, but other assistance in solicited in the meantime.

North and South Rivers[edit]

Port Republic sits between the North and South Rivers, the confluence of which forms the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. I have edited this page to reflect that. Sofa King 10:37, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Number of Staff Captured[edit]

I changed the number of Jackson's staff captured to 3, because Jed. Hotchkiss was captured, but escaped later in the fighting. Jehorn (talk) 13:27, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

I have provided a citation from Robertson's biography about the two staff officers. If you have a citation that indicates Hotchkiss was captured in this particular incident, please add it. Hal Jespersen (talk) 18:34, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
I added it. Jehorn (talk) 21:18, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I meant to say McGuire. Sorry Jehorn (talk) 21:19, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I am on a business trip and away from my sources and will check this upon my return. You should not be removing reliable-source citations from an article, BTW. You can add and/or clarify, but not delete. I'll fix it (as well as the currently incorrect number you've left in place). Hal Jespersen (talk) 05:24, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Battle of Cross Keys[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Battle of Cross Keys's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "nps":

  • From Battle of Port Republic: National Park Service battle summary
  • From First Battle of Winchester: National Park Service battle description
  • From Haugh House: "National register of Historic Places Listings, August 26, 2011". United States Department of the Interior, National Park Service. 2011. Retrieved 2013-11-15.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 05:45, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
