The Battle of Spotsylvania CourthouseIn the dank, pre-dawn light of May 12, 1864, Confederates huddled along these muddy works could hear the rumble of Union troops coming toward them. Moments later the first of 20,000 Union soldiers poured over the works like a wave, engaging Confederate defenders here in furious hand-to-hand combat.
