1. Chancellorsville Campaign Marker
Inscription. May 2-3, 1863. Units of Slocum's Federal XII Corps held this line. Its left extended a little beyond the Orange Plank Road (reader's left) where it connected with the right of Couch's II Corps. A mile to the southeast the Orange Plank Road intersected the Confederate line, at the crossing of the Furnace Road. While Lee's holding force there demonstrated against this sector on May 2, "Stonewall" Jackson marched to attack the Federal right flank, three miles west of here. Slocum and Couch abandoned this line in the general retreat of May 3.
