May 2-3, 1863. In this vicinity, holding Hooker's original center, Slocum's Corps curved northwestward (reader's right rear) to form an interior line behind Howard's Corps. When Jackson smashed Howard, Slocum's western line fell also. The rest of Slocum's position held, however, and from this area a new Federal right was run northward. Thus, on May 3, Slocum's right fought Jackson's Corps, while his left engaged Lee's holding force to the south. Slocum was driven back toward the Rappahannock during the morning of May 3.
