The trench for Thayer's Approach to the Confederate work in his front was started about May 30, 1863, on the north side of this ridge, through which it was carried by a tunnel. Preserved by the brick arch. The trench across the ravine to the foot of the spur south of this marker, about 6 feet wide and 6 feet deep, was covered by a blinding of bundles of can laid across it and affording protection against rifle balls. The Confederates did not use artillery against this blinding. When the trench reached cover at the base of spur two lines of approach were started and these lines united on top of the spur to form one approach.
