Explore the First Day at Chancellorsville on October 10
There is so much more to the story of the Battle of Chancellorsville than Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson’s famous flank attack on May 2, 1863. Join the Trust’s own Education Associate Daniel Davis to walk the ground of one of the most pivotal battles of the Civil War. Together, we will uncover the secrets of these rolling fields that helped shape the engagement, visit the land that you have helped to preserve, and examine the critical decisions made by Robert E. Lee and Joseph Hooker. Join us to hear the stories of horror and heroism that shaped the most influential day of what is known Lee’s “Greatest Victory.”
This tour will be held rain or shine. Please wear appropriate footwear and expect around two to two and a half miles of walking. Meet at the Lick Run Community Center (new Spotsylvania County Museum) Parking Lot 6159 Plank Road, Fredericksburg VA 22407
