Inscription
The cleared vista to the left offers a framed view of a 30-foot square, 23-foot high pyramid. It marks the left of the Northern penetration into Confederate lines on Dec. 13, 1862. Federal troops under Gen. George Meade took advantage of an unprotected marshy woodland 500 yards wide, which jutted beyond the railroad tracks. Although 4500 Federals surged through the defensive line, they were soon driven out, after sustaining 40 percent casualties. R. F. & P. railroadmen used unhewn Virginia granite to erect the pyramid in 1903 for the Confederate Memorial Literary Society, which sought to memorialize the battle in a location visible to train travelers.
