Lee's Army Divides
—Lee's Retreat —Shortly before noon on April 6, 1865, elements of Union Gen. George Crook's cavalry division attacked Confederate Gen. Richard H. Anderson's infantry corps as it marched through this intersection. While most of the Army of Northern Virginia continued marching straight ahead to Rice's Depot on the South Side Railroad after crossing Little Sailor's Creek, part of Anderson's corps quickly dug in here to repel Crook's attack.
