Veteran's Day

The Battle of Chancellorsville was fought April 30 to May 6, 1863. The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, led by Gen. Robert E. Lee, outnumbered by more than 2 to 1 by Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker's Union Army of the Potomac, won an audacious victory through a masterful division of forces. This is the view of Hazel Grove, site of vicious fighting during May 3 and 4.

Please take a moment this weekend to remember the contributions of the men and women of our Armed Forces.
