Caption: Fitzhugh Lee's Flanking Attack
Additional Description: Late in the afternoon, as Confederate General Matthew Butler's Brigade held off attacks at the Bloody Angle, General Fitzhugh Lee dispatched Lomax's Brigade from his division on a march around to the west to flank the Federals. Lomax passed through the grounds of what is today the Trevilians Elementary School and attacked the exposed Federal right (western) flank. This action broke the Federal lines and effectively ended the battle.
