Watson / natural light outsides United States United States of America Hanover County sign with text Caption ATTACK AT OX FORD 24 MAY 1864 A half-mile north, a brigade of Union infantry commanded by Brig. Gen. James H. Ledlie struck the center of Lee's army, which blocked Grant's approach to Richmond. Formidable earthworks hastily erected by Brig. Gen. William H. Mahone's division anchored the Confederate battle line at Ox Ford on the North Anna River. Although instructed to use "utmost caution," Ledlie, fortified with alcohol, ordered a charge. His men were bloodily repulsed and suffered more than 200 casualties, while Mahone lost about 50. On 27 May Grant withdrew towards Totopotomoy Creek. Department of Historic Resources, 1992.
