|Making this unique for FoWB was the fact that the four makers purchased were designated to be for four of the soldiers who were originally buried on the Ellwood manor grounds following the Chancellorsville Battle in 1863. Because J. Horace Lacy, the owner of the property, chose to record the names of some of those almost two dozen burials in 1866, we are able to honor them by name today.
The four markers are for:
Lt. William W. Posey, Co. F, 2nd LA Inf
Sgt Joseph Trunszler, Co. I, 15th LA Inf
Pvt Byron Vaughn, Co. D, 4th VA Inf
Pvt Archibald H. Vance, Co. D, 10th VA Inf
