On May 5, 1862 Lt. George A Custer (who in 1876 made his "Last Stand" on the Little Bighorn River in Montana) led a detachment along the roadway here over "Cub Dam Creek" to occupy the Confederate work on the bluff immediately beyond. This maneuver in the Battle of Williamsburg came as the Union Army advanced toward Richmond in the Peninsular Campaign.
