The most intense fighting of the Brandy
station Battle took place on the far rise (visible from the front porch
of the Graffiti House). The 12th Virginia cavalry came from the far side
of the hill, charged over the top (through the area today inhabited by
the house to the left of the telephone pole) and crashed into the 1st
New Jersey that was approaching the hilltop from the other side. The
farmhouse to the right of the pole was the site of the
Fleetwood House, upon whose grounds JEB
Stuart was camped when the battle began.
