This chapter is composed of two parts. The first part describes the preparations made by the Federals for an attack, but almost from the start, things went wrong for them because of weather conditions. Nearing the end of the year, the Federals sent a force against Gordonsville. This time the Confederates arrived in time to thwart the designs of the enemy. After that incident, the Federals remained quiet. The second part talks about the harshness of the weather to the battery.
