Union Flag Carrier U. S. CIVIL WAR
Confederate Flag Carrier




May 2, 1863. Hour by hour, the long gray columns of Jackson's Corps splashed through the shallow ford here, which was not stone-paved then, stirring the crossing into a mud hole. Before the water of this branch of Poplar Run ran clear again in its course toward the distant York, "Stonewall" Jackson and hundreds of his marchers were to fall dead or wounded. Many would never cross another earthly stream.
