Description   EN   

Jackson At ChancellorsvilleJust a quarter mile from here, across the Plank Road, in a stroke of misfortune, General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson was felled by a shot from his own troops during the Battle of Chancellorsville.

The area on this side of Plank Road is now a private campground, but the part where this cache is located is open to the public. We will not say more about what is here, other than to say that it was built in acknowledgement of the significant history of the area and of Civil War history in general.

And the only thing we'll tell you about the numerical confirmation code to log your find of this place is:

  • Antietam
  • Appomattox
  • Fredericksburg
  • Shiloh

After you figure that out, if you want a more serious study of the history of this area, go the quarter mile northeast of here to the Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center.

A fellow geocacher reported that it seemed like there had been a change at the site, and, indeed, there was when we checked it today.  The cache description has been updated so that the answer code remains the same.

I brought L with me and we played around for a little while and figured it out. This cache really engaged us and was fun. Thanks for placing!

#20 of 29 finds today. Spent the day with DudleyGrunt caching in the area. Found hides on 6 different listing services today: GC, TC, OCUS, NC, LbNA and GPSgames.

This was a quick C&D once I saw what needed to be done. Very creative and I actually learned something while visiting the site. TFTC

3193 / 79.  Was out with cycleangela for CAM, TC, & OCNA caches between SoMD and the Fredericksburg area.  It was getting later than we'd hoped, so after this, we decided to head north and hit a couple more.

This was an interesting memorial and not exactly what I'd expected.

I'll have to try to get back to more fully enjoy it, sometime.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Went out with Dudleygrunt to work on some of the OCNA and terracaches in the area.

I have to say, this one is definitely different, but that's a great thing though. I like surprises!

Thanks for the cache!
