Breezy day at Bernard’s Cabins
Clouds form over trees on a breezy Saturday afternoon at the Bernard’s Cabins site near Lee Drive and Prospect Hill in Spotsylvania. The site of a small slave community in 1862 owned by Arthur Bernard, it served as a Confederate artillery position at the end of Lt. Gen. Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson’s line. The tree groves in the vicintiy were reduced to kindling by intense cannister shot aimed at advancing Union troops on Dec. 13, 1862. ~ Reza A. Marvashti
