Following Union General David Hunter's victory on June 5, 1864 at the Battle of Piedmont, Virginia, he occupied Staunton on June 6 and then marched his 18,000 troops on to Lexington. He shelled the town, crossed over the Maury River at Jordan's Point on June 11 and burned Virginia Military Institute.
