June 9, 1863 – The Battle of Brandy Station. As the Army of Northern Virginia, under the command of General Robert E. Lee, started moving northward to take the war to the Union, General J.E.B. Stuart was tasked to screen this movement from Union scouts. Remnants of the battle were still in evidence when Fenton came here seeking Fenny in early August.

9 June - at the beginning of the Gettysburg campaign during the US Civil War, the largest cavalry engagement of the Western Hemisphere was fought at Brandy Station, Culpeper County, Virginia.

General J.E.B. Stuart’s personal Army of Northern Virginia battle flag. In December 2006, this flag, sewn by Flora Stuart, was sold in a Heritage Auction for a world-record price for any Confederate flag, for $956,000 (including buyer’s premium). The 34-inch by 34-inch flag was hand-sewn for Stuart by Flora in 1862 and Stuart carried it into some of his most famous battles. However, in December of that year it fell from a tent front into a campfire and was damaged.
