The Battle of the WildernessOn the ridge ahead of you stood the Chewning house, an important landmark on the Wilderness Battlefield. Sixty-nine-year-old William V. Chewning scratched out a living on this 150-acre farm during the war with the help of his wife Permelia and their two grown children. Union troops looted the farm in November 1863 but left the two-and-one-half-story frame house standing.
