A Union column, consisting of the VI Corps and elements of the XIX Corps under Maj. Gen. Horatio Wright, pursued Lt. Gen. Jubal Early’s army as it withdrew from the environs of Washington, D.C. Wright’s force was joined by elements of Crook’s command, which had accompanied Hunter during his retreat through West Virginia. On July 17, the Union cavalry passed through Snickers Gap and attempted to force passage of the Shenandoah River at Snickers Ford (Castleman’s Ferry). On the morning of July 18, the vanguard of the Union infantry moved through Snickers Gap. Col. Joseph Thoburn (of Crook’s command) led his division downstream to cross the river at Judge Richard Parker’s Ford. Early’s three nearby infantry divisions moved to defend the fords. In the afternoon, Rodes’s division attacked and shattered Thoburn’s right flank on the Cool Spring plantation. Thoburn made a stand behind a stone wall at the river’s edge and beat off three attacks until darkness enabled him to withdraw. Union pursuit of Early was delayed several days.

If a Spring Bok is suddenly alarmed, they will arch their back, instantly leap 2 metres (6 feet) forward, land on all four feet, then do it again, and again, and again.
Spring Boks are both grazers and browsers, they feed on grass, leaves, and roots.

California Wild Spring 2001 - Naturalist's Almanac (1089 words)
In the spring, forest litter and soils are usually much damper than in the fall, suggesting that spring fires can be safely kindled in a broader range of weather conditions.
These fires must burn slow and cool to avoid damaging seeds and shoots of sensitive annual plants, the swelling buds and new growth of perennials, and the tender roots of trees that grow close to the soil surface.
Even the trees themselves are at greater risk in the spring, for once their sap begins to rise, they’re much more susceptible to heat injury.
