Kennedy and his men passed this very spot during their attack on April 2, 1865. He described the action that occurred here: "About 5 a.m., at the signal from Fort Fisher, we commenced the charge; passing through the enemy's pickets, and, taking most of them prisoners, we pushed on to the main works, through two lines of abatis, and soon after took the work in our front, almost directly west of Fort Welch, with four pieces of artillery." Kennedy survived the assault and was mustered out of service in June 1865.
