Virtual Tour Stop, McLaws's Line

McLaws's Trail
McLaws's Trail

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.
