Inscription
Sherwood Forest, also known as the Fitzhugh
House, was built just northeast of here in the
first half of the 19th century. During the Civil
War, Union forces used the property as
communications center and observation post
most notably in April-May 1863. From here the
aeronautical corps launched balloons to monitor
Confederate movements south of the Rappahannock
River. When the Union Army of the Potomac's
1st Corps advanced across the Rappahannock on
29 April 1863 during the Chancellorsville
Campaign. Sherwood Forest served as a staging
ground, and the property became a hospital for
wounded Union soldiers.
