The present-day Winder Lane was at the time of the War Between the States the lane to the Crittenden Home site and General Winder’s Division and the “Stonewall Brigade” was positioned along this stretch of the lane. In the distance is Cedar Mountain, which provided a strong anchor for Jackson's right flank, Major General Ewell’s Division. General Ewell placed artillery on the small knoll in front of Cedar Mountain.
