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




May 3, 1863. At daylight Hooker ordered the withdrawal of Sickles's troops from this height, called Hazel Grove, key position of Hooker's front after Jackson's flanking movement. Promptly occupying it with Archer's Confederate Brigade, Stuart, now in command of Jackson's Corps, ordered a heavy concentration of artillery here. These guns enfiladed the Federal position at Fairview and a division of Slocum's XII Corps entrenched to the southeast. From this point about 10, a.m. Lee watched the converging lines of Confederate gray sweep forward to force the Federals northward beyond the turnpike.
