Dennis Frey: (in closing)
This was, perhaps, one of the first instances that the United States will use the railroad in a rapid troop deployment - to move troops during an emergency from one location - Washington, in this case - to another - Harper's Ferry - to stop an enemy advance. They succeed. If it had not been for the railroad, there was no way they could have gotten those Union soldiers out here quickly, and Jackson, indeed, probably would have forced the evacuation of Harper's Ferry and cleared the Shenandoah Valley of all Union soldiers. Only here was Stonewall Jackson stopped.
