Virtual Tour, Salem Church
Members of the New Salem Church congregation serve as volunteers in manning the old church on weekend afternoons during the summer months. At that time, visitors can go inside the church.
The park has produced two brochures to help understand the fighting around Salem Church. One covers the immediate area around the church and the other is a driving tour for the 2nd Fredericksburg/Salem Church portion of the Chancellorsville Battlefield.

The Battle of Todd's Tavern was not the largest cavalry battle of the war, but may have been the most important. Confederate horsemen delayed the advance of the Union just long enough so that the Confederate army could win the race to Spotsylvania which extended the war for eleven months.
