On the morning of May 3, Col. Emlen Franklin's Union brigade shifted from south of the Orange Turnpike to this vicinity. Here, they met Pender and Thomas head on. Lt. Col. Jonathan H. Lockwood of the 7th Virginia (Union) remembered what happened when his brigade arrived and attacked the Confederate left flank: "We opened on them a volley of musketry that apparently shook the ground they walked on. We immediately charged them, putting them to flight." The Confederates fell back all the way to the earthworks where they had begun the attack, west of the modern visitor center.
