Federal soldiers of the 12th Corps built these earthworks on May 1, 1863. "Stonewall" Jackson's flank attack the following day placed them in Confederate hands. At about 6:00 a.m. on May 3, North Carolinians under William Dorsey Pender and Georgians commanded by Edward L. Thomas left the safety of these trenches to attack the Union line about ½ mile east of here, behind you as you face this sign.
