The two battlefields of the Overland Campaign of 1864 each have shelters where you can find out more information on these two gruesome battles. About five miles west of the Chancellorsville Visitor Center, you drive out west on VA 3 and turn left where VA 20 heads west towards Orange. Just after turning left, look on the left side for the small road that leads off to the Ellwood House. Union headquarters for Grant and Meade were in this vicinity on VA 20. Another mile, you will find the Shelter on the north side of the road. Plenty of informational panels to purvey. There is now restrooms nor water here here. During the summer and on weekends you can find Park historians at the Shelter to help answer your questions.
