From this dominating position, Confederates of Major General Robert Hoke's Division, easily repulsed part of the famous June 3 assault. For the South Carolinians holding this line, the battle ended before they knew a serious charge had been made.

[I was] situated near the centre of the line along which this murderous repulse was given, and awake and vigilant of the progress of events, [and] was not aware at any time of any serious assault having been given.
Johnson Hagood, Confederate Officer

By the summer of 1864 construction of earthen defenses had become a refined science. This section of well preserved fortifications lacks only the "header log" through which the soldiers fired.
