'(60)D. 97; July 30, 1884, Wednesday 11 a.m. clear; On extreme left is Mr. Stickley's farm in whose barn we spent the night. Strasburg lies a little too far to the left to come into sight. No 93 was taken from that stretch of pike a few roads from the house. When we came to the end of that straight portion we fastened the team and climbed that little rise which is crowned with a fringe of trees (it stands right over our head) and from that took No's 95 and 96. This view looks up the rather open valley of Cedar Creek, whose left on NE bank  was occupied by the Union army. The fighting was mainly at the extreme right of this view and along down the pike for several miles. The mts. in the distance mark the western part of the Shenandoah Valley.'

That whole ridge to the right of the woods was covered by the tents of Crooks camp. The farm and hay stocks on the left are the same as appear in No. 97 and 98. Our troops after the surprise were driven towards the left through those woods to and across the pike which after crossing the stream keeps on down the main valley nearly parallel with the portion visible.'

'The entire house is only a few yards from the great bridge and is on the right of the pike as one comes from Strasburg, up the valley. The road on the left becomes Tumbling Run and then crosses the opposite bank.; 90.D(56); July 29, 1884, Tuesday 2:15 pm'
'88.D.(54); July 28, 1884, Monday 5.30 pm; Misty and very dark; The right of the picture is ground occupied by Sheridan. The left by Confed. army. The R.R. embankment can be detected running left to right just in front of the houses. The Mts. in the distance are those along which the flank movement of Gen. Crook was made, by which about 4 p.m. he came upon the left rear of the Confed. over beyond the R.R. On the left in mid-distance is the field occupied by Gordon which No's 85, 86 were taken.'

The distant hill of No. 97 on the left. Our troops were driven across the field from the left towards the right; nearly parallel with the pike. 99.D.(61); July 30, 1884, Wednesday 12:15 clear'
'End of Sheridan's famous ride to battlefield of Cedar Creek looking North. The ridge on the left where the whole fenced cemetery stand was held for a while by our troops and then they were forced back parallel with the pike beyond Middletown, a few houses of which are seen on the right. At the first of them, on the right of the pike. Walter drew water from a well out in the field for the team. (62)D.101; July 30, 1884, Wednesday 12:45 pm'
83 D (51).  July 28, 1884, Monday 2:30 p.m. cloudy.  About 2 miles south up the valley from Strasburg, Va.   The pike here climbs an embankment and then goes over the bridge and turns a right angle up the valley of Tumbling Run.   We turned off to the lower (East) side and eat our dinner under the big trees on the right.  A ghost of the carriage can be made out.  This view would have made a fine picture if the Neg had not fogged in the development.
