Following the 150th Anniversary of Stoneman's Raid-- Part 1

From the April 2, 2015, Salisbury (NC) Post "Online daily 'Gazette' tracks people, stories behind Stoneman's Raid" by Mark Wineka.

Tom Layton is the creator, publisher, editor and writer on the new online newspaper The Stoneman Gazette where he is tracking the day-to-day events of Major general George Stoneman's Raid through Tennessee, North Carolina, southern Virginia and South Carolina.

Right now, we are in the midst of this raid's 150th anniversary.  This is one of the longest cavalry raids in U.S. military history.  His 4,000 troopers fought Confederate home defense forces, destroyed rail road tracks, bridges, factories, arsenals and supplies.  Anything that could be of use to the fast-dying Confederacy.
