A Hunter’s Paradise!
Quiet rolling parcel with small regrowth in the center and tremendous hardwoods around the edge. Property has paths cut through and is a hunter’s paradise. Power lines are at the property, so that easement is solved and the shared easement through large hardwoods is in good shape. Property has many possibilities and would be great for family getaways, atvs, shooting, hunting, and so much more.
Spotsylvania County was established in 1721 from Essex, King and Queen, and King William counties. The county was named in Latin for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia Alexander Spotswood.
Many battles were fought in this county during the Civil War, including the Battle of Chancellorsville, Battle of the Wilderness, Battle of Fredericksburg, and Battle of Spotsylvania Court House.
Stonewall Jackson was shot and mortally wounded in Spotsylvania County during the Battle of Chancellorsville. A group of Confederate soldiers from North Carolina were in the woods and heard General Jackson’s party returning from reconnoitering the Union lines. They mistook him for a Federal patrol and fired their weapons, wounding him in both arms. His left arm was amputated. General Jackson died a few days later from pneumonia at nearby Guinea Station. Confederate wounded were being gathered there for evacuation to hospitals further to the south and away from enemy lines.
