Vicious fighting surged back and forth across this large clearing on the morning of May 3. From here, you can clearly see the two key Union positions; Fairview, to your right front near the brick wall of the Chancellor Cemetery; and the Chancellorsville Inn site to your left front. The Confederates renewed their advance across the scene of their earlier success while three additional Southern brigades extended the Confederate line across the Turnpike. In this vicinity, the 5th Maine Battery joined other artillery and Union infantry to repulse again the Confederate assaults. The flag of the 5th Alabama was captured on earthworks near the Chancellorsville Inn. This probably is the banner displayed in the Chancellorsville Visitors Center.
