Description   EN   

 

Few, if any, of the thousands of Confederate soldiers who streamed by at the start of the famous Jackson Flank March during the Battle of Chancellorsville knew the significance of the site tucked off the roadside here.


Come discover it for yourself!


The password to log your discovery is the number of Confederate soldiers who marched past on May 2, 1863, as it appears on the sign at the posted coordinates.

 


While in the area, the Cachew Knutz hope that you will also search for our nearby Nautical Knutz geocache.

3523.  Headed down to Fredericksburg area to try to clean up the 3 unfound OC caches.  I should have visited them in the reverse order, apparently, but I got this one without a problem.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Found while in the area looking for another nearby cache.  I now know why the name Maury is a part of Fredericksburg.  Thanks for putting these caches together.  (Now I have to find that one near RHS!)
