Inscription
May 2, 1863. Deluding the enemy was the secret of Jackson's success. Since his troops had been observed from Federal signal stations as they marched across the front of Hooker's army, he turned them south on the Brock Road to create the impression that he was in full retreat along the road to Spotsylvania Court House. Reaching a point where the head of his column was concealed from the Federals by dense forests, he turned sharply right, going north along this woodland trail which parallels the Brock Road, to complete his flanking movement.
