Just south of here on Brook Road (present-day U.S. Route 1) is the site of Yellow Tavern. North of the tavern, on 11 May 1864, Maj. Gen. J. E. B. Stuart deployed his Confederate cavalry to confront Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan's Union cavalry as it advanced on Richmond. It was during this engagement that Stuart was mortally wounded. Because of the proximity of the engagement to the tavern, it was officially called the Battle of Yellow Tavern.
