May 24, 1864 3:45pmThe trenches before you were manned by the soldiers of Brigadier General Nathaniel Harris' brigade of Mississippians, who had deployed just to the right of Sanders' Alabamians by 1:00 p.m. on the 24th. The small pits behind the trench line served as an area from which the brigade commander, his staff, and his medical and supply personnel could operate in relative safety. From this point, Alabama soldiers ventured out at about 3:45 p.m. on the 24th and captured several men of the 35th Massachusetts during the latter's foray against these breastworks. Harris and Sanders would occupy these works through the 26th.
