|Casualties and losses|
The Battle of Jillvy was the final battle in the Border Line Campaign. It was fought on February 9, 1861, and was Stonewall Jackson's only loss during the entire campaign.
After the horrible defeat at Watertown, the Union planned to rebound by attacking again with 31,000 soldiers. George Meade was put in charge of this plan by Ulysses S. Grant because he found "the perfect guy" in Meade. Meade told his officers to start the attack at 1:00 p.m., and have Chamberlain's, Reynold's & Phillip Kearny's divisions charge at the same time.
