Enoch, Cox & Spring Gap camps

    This map shows the topography of the route from near the Winchester camp through Enoch's at Forks of Capon where the North River joins the Cacapon River across to the camp on top of Spring Gap Mountain and then down to the Little Cacapon River that empties into the Potomac at Cox's. The three red dots mark the camps from lower to upper: Enoch's, Spring Gap, Cox's. Enoch's where the North River joins the Cacapon River was the first camp in what is now West Virginia. Although it was a long day's march for the infantry from Enoch's to Cox's or Ferry Field at the mouth of the Little Cacapon River, the artillery had to camp on top of Spring Gap Mountain. This was Braddock's first indication of how difficult the march would become as he pressed into the mountains. The lake on lower right is the Summit in Frederick County, Virginia.  Copyrighted by Charles C. Hall, 2004
