TURN IN SHERIDAN'S RAID
At this point in his Richmond raid, Gen. Sheridan, after a fight with Confederate cavalry commanded by General Willians C. Wickham, turned off the Telegraph Road to Beaver Dam, May 9, 1864. This change of route caused Sheridan to approach Richmond from the northwest instead of the North.
