SKIRMISHING ERUPTS IN WESTERN VIRGINIA - SEPTEMBER 1ST 1861
NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Some of the early fighting in the War for Southern Indepen-
dence occurred in the far western boundaries of Virginia in
the early days of 1861.

There is reported fighting in Boone County on September 1st
of 1861. Along the Blue Creek and at the Boone County Court
House there was light skirmishing between Confederates that
were determined to rid the area of federal invaders and the
thin ranks of union forces.

There is reports of light skirmishin in Burlington Virginia
as well. None of these fights amount to any major actions.
However they do instill strong sentiments between those who
favor staying with the union and loyal Virginians who leave
to join the Confederacy.
