The city was also located about 25 miles north of a huge confederate ral and supply center in Staunton. At the time Rockingham County was one of the most prosperous agricultural counties in the nation. The region including Harrisonburg and Rockingham County was known as "The Breadbasket of the Confederacy" resulting in a prime location for the struggle between Union and Confederate forces.
