Anticipating the secession vote on May 23rd, he then made preparations for an invasion of Virginia involving thousands of troops.

Five weeks after his call for militia he has thousands of troops? Or did you mean the Manassas invasion? Remember that at this time he was very much afraid of an attack on Washington. Beauregard's troops at Manassa Junction couldn't have made him sleep better.

Using the 1st Virginia as a source to cite is no better than using me as a source.
