I'm beginning to think that you're right about the 1st Virginia.
Lets see- they mentioned the 1st Michigan and the 11th NY Zouaves. I don't know if there were actually eleven regiments coming across that evening, but it doesn't take many regiments to make: "thousands of troops."
Lets look for something else out there. Ah, heres one:
Cronology of the Civil War
It says that on 24 May, 10,000 troops invaded Virginia and occupied Alexandria. Ten thousand sounds like about eleven regiments to me.
Hey, I know that the site loses credibility because the authors can't spell, "Chronology," but at least it isn't a LR site.
