On April 30, 1863, Gen. George G. Meade's Union Fifth Corps advanced along this road toward Chancellorsville. As Meade's troops approached, Confederates on the Bullock Farm briefly resisted them, then disappeared into the woods to spread word of the Union advance. For the next three days the armies would grapple beyond the Chancellorsville crossroads, one mile to your right.

Throughout the battle fresh troops arrived along this road, until more than 90,000 Federals crowded the battlefield. On May 3, after perhaps the most intense morning of fighting in American history, the Federals spilled back along this road and through the adjacent woods. A portion of General Joseph Hooker's final line is visible across the road.
