On the afternoon of August 30, 1862, the rolling fields of John Dogan's farm, "Rosefield," formed a crucial defensive position for General John Pope's Union Army of Virginia. As General James Longstreet's Confederate attack swept onto Chinn Ridge, Union commanders here attempted to stave off impending disaster. Northern artillerists, commanding more than 40 guns along the ridge, dueled with Southern gunners near Groveton and delayed Longstreet's advance south of the Warrenton Turnpike.
