Inscription
Just northeast, Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker, commander of the Union Army of the Potomac, kept his headquarters, Jan. - June 1863, amid a vast city of tents and camps. It was here he rehabilitated he Union army after its catastrophic defeat in the First Battle of Fredericksburg in Dec. 1862 and its subsequent "Winter of Discontent." From here he designed a campaign to defeat Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia at Chancellorsville - a brilliant plan that failed in May 1863 because of his hesitancy and Lee's aggressiveness. President Abraham Lincoln twice visited Hooker, here in April 1863 and again in May, after the defeat.
