Under Colonel Kenton Harper, the 5th Regiment with General Thomas J. Jackson’s First Brigade received its baptism of fire on July 2, 1861 at Falling Waters. The regiment was outstanding in its participation at First Manassas, where Colonel Harper was one of the individuals credited with giving the name “Stonewall” to Jackson. With the First Brigade, which became the Stonewall Brigade, the 5th Virginia fought through the 1862 Valley Campaign and in the Seven Days’ battle. At Second Manassas Colonel William Smith Hanger Baylor of the 5th Regiment was killed while commanding the Stonewall Brigade at the unfinished railroad cut. The regiment was at Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Second Winchester, and Gettysburg, where, under Colonel John Henry Stover Funk of Winchester, they were in the desperate fighting at Wolfe’s Hill.
