Battle of The Wilderness Marker, JJ-20

Ewell's Corps, the left wing of Lee's army, moving down this road from Orange, came into conflict near here with Warren's Corps of Grant's army, May 5, 1864. The fight moved to and fro until Ewell finally drove Warren back and entrenched here. Late the next afternoon, May 6, Ewell attacked the Unionists. Meanwhile, two miles south, on the Orange Plank Road, the right wing of Lee's army was engaged with Grant's left wing.
