Rather than facing in a close future the combined forces of Banks and Fremont, Jackson seizes the initiative and concentrates to the west, against the advance elements of Fremont's Mountain department.
Schenck's and Milroy's federal brigades can't hold on the Bull Pasture river, if Jackson deploys his whole division and outflanks them. But his column is still stretched in the mountain, thus allowing Milroy to conduct a spoiling attack.
The first goal is Sitlington's hill, east of the Bull Pasture river.
