A 12-pounder Napoleon at Battery Heights. On August 28, 1862, "Stonewall" Jackson's troops slammed into the Federals marching down the Warrenton Pike. This action, lasting around one and a half hours opened the Battle of Second Bull Run

This is the New York monument to the men of the 5th and 10th New York Regiments.  Longstreet's Corps slammed in to Pope's left on this ridge, and although the New Yorkers made a gallant stand, it was all over in minutes.  In five minutes, the 5th New York Regiment lost 123 men killed, the most men killed in any infantry regiment, in any battle of the Civil War


The foundation of the Chinn House on Chinn Ridge; Federal troops fought a delaying action here against Longstreet's Corps to allow Pope time to set up a second defensive line on Henry Hill

 Monument to Colonel Fletcher Webster (son of famed orator Daniel Webster) of the 12th Mass. Infantry located on Chinn Ridge. Webster was killed here on August 30, 1862. The monument was erected in 1914; the boulder came from the Webster homeplace in Marshfield, Mass
