Inscription
May 2, 1863. The head of Jackson's column reached this point about 12:30 p.m. Eight miles away, the rear , under fire of Federal guns, was closing up near the Catharine Furnace. Jackson planned to turn the column right onto the Plank Road (1 mile ahead). Then General Fitzhugh Lee came galloping south. While the troops rested, the young cavalryman and Jackson advanced to a hill on the Plank Road from which Lee showed him that the Federal right was extended too far west to be outflanked by the chosen route. Quickly changing plans, Jackson continued his march along the Brock Road to the Orange Turnpike. There he turned and swept eastward against the unsuspecting foe.
