December 13, 1862. This is Hamilton's Crossing, the crossing of the Old Mine Road over the Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad. Since the railroad was threatened from here to Fredericksburg by long range Federal cannon, Hamilton's Crossing became the railhead in the winter of 1862-63. A Confederate village of supply tents and sheds grew up at this point. Jackson's reserves lay along the Mine Road during the battle of 1862, and from this area his corps marched toward Chancellorsville on April 30, 1863.
