I’m On Location at Chancellorsville once again—this time at the scene of one of the most famous incidences of the war. Stonewall Jackson, riding along the Mountain Road, was accidentally shot by his own men—and we’ve been talking about it ever since.

We also have an audiobook excerpt available for you to listen to.

The Park Service undertook a conservation project to help preserve the original Mountain Road roadbed in 2012. You can look here for details.
