Capt. James S. BrownBrown's battery held four different positions on this end of the battlefield, demonstrating the mobility of field artillery. The battery started the day on the high ground to the west, then around noon moved past this position to the ridge line in front of you. As the Union Ninth Corps took the Burnside Bridge, the guns were moved back to here where Brown dueled with Union artillery and fired on Burnside's men as they advanced to within 100 yards of the guns. Capt. Brown was severely wounded in the foot and the guns pulled back to their original position.
