Nearby there is another marker commemorating the Fight at Gold's Farm that is best described as an ambush. On the same day the Battle of Berryville opened (September 3rd 1864), Union General Alfred Torbert was patrolling south of the town. A detachment of Mosby’s command under Captain Sam Chapman attacked the Federal lead elements, the 6th N.Y. Cavalry, and scattered them. As the main Federal force approached, Chapman withdrew with 40 horses and 30 prisoners
