Winchester in Southern VictoryEdit
The town of Winchester was captured during the opening phases of the Second Mexican War. This was done to relive the pressure of Washington which was under attack. The town became the focus of a large battle that defeated the US Army, and forced them back into town itself. However, the Union commander, now facing a battle of two fronts, chose to withdraw back into Maryland, abandoning the town. After this, the Confederates marched back into Winchester to the cheers of the inhabitants.
