1. Spotsylvania Campaign Marker
Inscription. Union Gen. G.K. Warren's V Corps occupied this line in the early phases of the Spotsylvania operations. Despite hard fighting, Warren could not break the Confederate line on this front. During the dark and rainy night of May 13, 1864, the V Corps sloshed to the far left of the Federal position, beyond the Fredericksburg-Spotsylvania Road. Grant was continuing his sidestepping tactics.
