This marker is located on the new Culpepper Road and describes the fighting that occurred on Jackson’s left at the Crittenden farm lane gate. Major General A. P. Hill’s Division arrived, repelled the Federal attacking force, and drove them from the field.

After the left flank was stabilized partially due to the rallying force of Thomas J. Jackson personality but more the arrival of Major General A.P. Hill’s Division to the front and lack of support for Crawford’s Brigade, the Federal force was repulsed and fled down the Old Culpepper Road, which is to the left in this photograph.
