On Sept. 28, 1863, raiders under Confederate Maj. John S. Mosby raided Rose Hill, which stood near here. Col. Daniel Dulany, aide to Francis H. Pierpont, the provisional governor of the Restored Government of Virginia, was in his house at the time and was captured by Mosby. One of the raider's men was Dulany's own son.
