(7-02Tour Stop 8 (Sunken Road: Bloody Lane), view looking northwest. The road at right leads to the Roulette Farm. The curve near the west end of the Sunken Road is in the background. 2002 NPS Tour Guide: For nearly 4 hours, Union and Confederate infantry contested this sunken country road, resulting in over 5,000 casualties. Thus the name "Bloody Lane"
