This spring has always been important to the McCoull family but on May 12, 1864 it became a vital source of rejuvenation to hundreds of Confederates involved in the fighting at the Bloody Angle. Colonel Charles S. Venable, an aide-de-camp to Lee, remembered seeing Gen. Robert E. Rodes "near the famous spring" ordering fresh troops into the struggle at the salient. The concrete cap and modern pipe were added when the Civilian Conservation Corps used this area for a camp in the 1930's. This is no longer an approved water source and is unsafe for drinking.
