(2006) Enlarge The intersection of the Brock Road and Orange Plank Road is considered by some historians to be the most important intersection of the entire war. If the Union was going to win the war, it needed to control this intersection so that the Union army could proceed southeast. Some historians believe that possession of this intersection combined with General Grant's decision to move forward proved to be the turning point in the war in the eastern theatre
