Catharine Furnace (J)
At a road juncture at the Catharine Furnace (The remains are shown in this 1999 photograph) Jackson's troops turned south, re-enforcing Hooker's opinion that Lee was retreating. Later, a battle between Hooker's forces and Jackson's rear guard took place near here.

Charles C. Wellford, proprietor of Catharine Furnace, provided his son, Charles, to guide Jackson's flanking attack via a route not visible from the Union lines.

As Jackson's troop marched past the Wellford home, and the rattle of approaching Union battle lines neared, they fled into the woods and returned several days later to a damaged house.
