During the Civil War, Clarke County was in the midst of Col. John Singleton Mosby's theater of operations. There are many well-marked sites of his skirmishes within the county. Confederate General Jubal Early's army fought the Battle of Cool Spring along the Shenandoah River and General Robert E. Lee, whose wife was born in Clarke County, camped here on his way to Gettysburg. The Civil War devastated the area, but many of the old plantation homes survived and still stand today.
