(April 8, 2012) Enlarge While going to the site of the battle, do not be deterred by seeing a subdivision. We were afraid we had gone on to private property, but noticed a side road to the park. Still it was a little uneasy to have people watching us from their backyards as we approached the battlefield park which is open to the public
Union Troops (9th NJ, 51st NY, 21st MA, 51st PA) under Jesse Reno made a break-through near here. The CSA earthworks are in the park which is behind the homes
