May 12, 1864. Union commanders Grant and Meade determined to exploit the Confederate "Mule Shoe." Early in the morning they sent Hancock's II Corps against the apex of the Salient (300 yards east). Hancock took the trenches on either side of the apex and pushed deep within the Confederate lines. As Gordon's Division and other troops counterattacked to drive the Federals back, the troops of Rodes' Confederate Division charged up the trenches to this point. Brigade after brigade was thrown into the fight. The bitterest part of the struggle took place in this vicinity.
