Map Summary

This rather busy map of the Wilderness Battlefield (outlined in the Theater of Operations Map on the first page), appears at the beginning of each of the pages in this section. It has numbers, which are enclosed in parentheses in the text ( ), marking the location of the photographs and the events described in the text. If you click on one of the numbers on the map you will see a photograph from that area.

Jackson's flanking march around the Union line, during the May, 1863 battle at Chancellorsville, is marked by a dotted line along the Brock Road. It is provided in order to give the viewer an idea of the proximity, and overlap, of the two battlefields.

An extension of the Germanna road (from the Orange Turnpike to the Orange Plank Road), and the Culpeper Mine Road which appear on this map, are not present today. It should also be noted that the old Orange Turnpike ran south of the Wilderness Tavern rather than north of it as route 3 currently does and as is reflected on the map.
