Caption: Driving Tour Stop Four
Additional Description: Just a short distance south of the marker is a segment of the battlefield where action occurred on May 1-3, 1863. The field was preserved through the efforts of the Central Virginia Battlefields Trust. There is an eight stop walking trail (without interpretive markers) around the field. Several episodes of note occurred in the bounds of this tract of the battlefield. When ordered off the high ground where this photo was taken, Federal General George G. Meade remarked, "...if we can't hold the top of the hill, we certainly can't hold the bottom of it."
