Piedmont (Va,) battlefield, where 'Grumble' Jones was killed

On June 5, 1864,  Brigadier General William "Grumble" Jones (right), a Confederate cavalry commander, was killed at the Battle of Piedmont. That hallowed ground, privately owned, is perhaps the most unspoiled battlefield in the Shenandoah Valley. Jones was buried on the field by Federals. He was re-buried in a church cemetery in Glade Spring, Va., about 20 miles from the Tennessee border.
