Virtual Tour Stop, McLaws's Line
Lafayette McLaws's division held this line on May 1-3. The strong skirmish line on May 2 held the attention of Joe Hooker allowing "Stonewall" Jackson to march around Hooker's army and attack his flank. A two-mile trail goes across what is now a field (young trees in 1863) to the Confederate skirmish line on the high ground shown in the background of the photo just before the woodline.

The famous photo of the Sunken Road at Fredericksburg was taken on May 3, 1863 during the 2nd Battle of Fredericksburg. The dead are members of Barksdale's Mississippi Brigade.
