Biography: 

In April, 1862, when J.E.B. Stuart's raiding party supposedly visits his camp in Virginia, General John Pope would in fact have been in Mississippi. But based on his success there, he was brought east and promoted to command of the Union Army of Virginia soon afterwards. He lost that position after losing decisively in September, 1862, to Lee's troops at the Second Battle of Bull Run.
