— Battle of Spotsylvania Court House —Throughout May 12, Confederates here waged a battle for critical minutes and hours. When Union troops swarmed over the east face of the Muleshoe Salient before dawn, Robert E. Lee knew instantly that the position - even if regained temporarily - could not be held permanently. But to build a new line farther to the rear, he needed time.
