These stone chimneys are all that remain of the Landram house, a prominent landmark during the Spotsylvania Campaign. The Confederate picket reserve stood here shivering in the early morning fog on May 12, 1864 when the silence was suddenly shattered by the assault of 20,000 Federals of the II Corps. The sentries were quickly engulfed and the blue wave swept over the 550 yards of rolling open terrain crashing into the surprised rebels at the salient. Shortly after 7:00 a.m. General Hancock, commanding the II corps, moved his headquarters forward to the Landram house in plain view of the day-long fighting. Unlike so many soldiers who passed it, the Landram house survived the battle only to fall prey to fire in the more peaceful times of 1905.
