The Battle of Fredericksburg

This trail will take you across the swampy headwaters of Ninemile Run, where for three days Confederate skirmishers of General Lafayette McLaws' division sparred with elements of Joseph Hooker's Union army. McLaws' spirited attacks fixed Hooker's attention on this sector, enabling "Stonewall" Jackson to successfully maneuver around the Union army's right flank, four miles ahead of you.

Fliers at Stop #1 will lead you on a self-guided tour of this little-known phase of the Chancellorsville fighting.

Trail length: 1 mile
Difficulty: Moderate
