Around 15,000 men and the artillery of General Samuel Heintzelman's Union Third Corps occupied this long stretch of open fields before you. They did not come under direct assault, but did supply reinforcements to the front line.

The farm silo you can see in the distance is near the site of the Binford House. Fully two additional corps of infantry, some 25 to 30,000 men, lay in reserve beyond the Binford Farm. "I could hardly conceive any power that could overwhelm us," wrote a New Jersey soldier. "It was a great and grand sight, the like of which in all probability I shall never see again."
