    • Jonathan died on Oct 19, 1864 in Cedar Creek, VA as a member of the union troops in the Civil War. Nearly 8,757 men lost their lives in the battle during Sheridan's Shanandoah Valley Campaign.

      From American Civil War Website:
      At dawn, October 19, 1864, the Confederate Army of the Valley under Lieutenant General Jubal A. Early surprised the Federal army at Cedar Creek and routed the VIII and XIX Army Corps.

      US Commander Major General Philip Sheridan arrived from Winchester to rally his troops, and, in the afternoon, launched a crushing counterattack, which recovered the battlefield.

      Sheridan's victory at Cedar Creek broke the back of the Confederate army in the Shenandoah Valley.

      Lincoln rode the momentum of Sheridan's victories in the Valley and General Sherman's successes in Georgia to re-election.
