The Chancellorsville Inn
The Chancellorsville Inn, in Chancellorsville, VA. A note about its history
from the website www.usa-civil-war.com
"When the Confederates finally overran Chancellorsville, their cannon fire destroyed the Chancellorsville inn. It was on the porch of this house that Union General Hooker was injured when cannon fire almost killed him. Some writers believe the injury affected his later decisions regarding the battle.
The 2000 photograph, below, shows the foundation of the inn which faces the now heavily traveled State Route 3 (The old Orange Turnpike). "
The 1863 photograph, above, shows the condition of the inn about one year after the battle.
