"Hell is empty and all the devils are here."
— Antietam Campaign 1862 —As Confederate Gen. D.H. Hill's division struggled to hold the gaps of South Mountain on September 14, 1862, the fighting here at Fox's Gap raged throughout the day. About 9 a.m., Gen. Jesse L. Reno's corps attacked Confederate Gen. Samuel Garland's lines approximately ? of a mile south of here and began pushing the men north towards Fox's Gap. Sometime around midmorning, Garland fell mortally wounded and the Confederates scattered into the gap.
