The Battle of Chancellorsville

This short trail leads to the birthplace of Matthew Fontaine Maury, one of America's greatest scientists.

By the time of the Civil War, Maury's birthplace was gone, replaced by a simple brick house. Few of the 28,000 Confederate soldiers who marched past on May 2, 1863, knew the significance of the site tucked off the roadside about 200 yards in front of you. Today only a depression remains.
