After several days of digging an approach trench to get to this point, a first parallel was established. In siege warfare a series of trenches that face the enemy's defenses are called parallels. The first parallel established a secure position from which Greene's men could advance. The trenches were dug mostly under the cover of darkness and involved backbreaking labor.
