Turn in Sheridan’s Raid Marker, E-30

At this point in his Richmond raid, Gen. Sheridan, after a fight with Confederate cavalry commanded by General Willians C. Wickham, turned off the Telegraph Road to Beaver Dam, May 9, 1864. This change of route caused Sheridan to approach Richmond from the northwest instead of the north. Error: Note that the first sentence of the marker is incorrect, and should read: At this point in his Richmond raid, Gen. Sheridan, after a fight with Confederate cavalry commanded by General Williams C. Wickham, turned off the Telegraph Road to Beaver Dam, May 9, 1864.
