Short Street

Orange, Virginia 

In the fall of 1863, General Robert E Lee's army took up winter quarters in the hills around Orange, which was then known as Orange Court House. Supplies were critically low over that winter, but in the spring of 1864 General Longstreet arrived from Tennessee with reinforcements. At the end of April, General Lee began the march to intercept General Grant at Wilderness, and the final great campaign of the war began.
