myer's hill 

While the 1864 battle of Spotsylvania Court House is best known for the May 12 fighting at the “Bloody Angle,” there was more to the battle than just the Mule Shoe Salient.


In 2018, Central Virginia Battlefields Trust began the acquisition of a vitally important piece of property that will open up more of the story of the battle of Spotsylvania Court House. This important property is Myer’s Hill.


“Myer’s Hill is one of the most important pristine sites remaining to be preserved on the Spotsylvania Court House battlefield,” says award-winning historian Gordon Rhea, whose work has focused on the 1864 Overland Campaign, including Spotsylvania Court House. “It is imperative that this key location be saved to enable future generations to walk the ground and understand the momentous events that transpired there.”


Central Virginia Battlefields Trust is working to preserve more than 73.3 acres of this important property.
