The old colonial Mineral Springs Road crossed here running about one mile northeast to Tubal (Spotswood's Furnace) and Scott's Dam Ford on the Rappahannock. The road straddled the ridge between La Roque's Run and Mineral Springs Creek. On May 3 thru 6, 1863, the road formed the forward edge for Sickle's III Corps, Couch's II Corps, Howard's XI Corps, and Slocum's XII Corps of about 62,041 men. This line was contained to the southeast by many small unit infantry engagements and artillery duels with Anderson's and McLaw's Divisions of the Confederate I Corps of about 17,035 men under the direct command of General Robert E. Lee.
