Journey of the Captives - Arrival at Guinea Station

Tuesday, May 5, 1863

The Twenty Seventh Connecticut reached Guinea Station on route to Richmond. They camped not far from the house where Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson lay wounded from "friendly fire" encountered at Chancellorsville on May 2. They encountered severe weather at Guinea Station which delayed their progress for two days.1
