Inscription
May 2, 1863. Jackson's two leading lines, battling the tangled undergrowth and the retreating Federal XI Corps, became disorganized. In this vicinity, Jackson halted his successful advance and ordered A.P. Hill's Division to the front. While the change was being made, Jackson rode out with his staff about 9 p.m. to reconnoiter the Federal position. Meeting A.P. Hill, he gave one of his last field commands: "Press them! Cut them off from the United States Ford, Hill! Press them!" A few minutes later he fell mortally wounded by the mistaken fire of his own men.
