Cold Harbor Battlefield Park Walking TrailTime has changed this landscape dramatically since the war. In 1864, much of the Co1d Harbor area was cleared farmland. One Federal believed this openness of the land was "the greatest part of the misery" at Cold Harbor. The deadly fire of Confederate sharpshooters prevented Union soldiers from moving freely behind the lines. "There was no cover from the fire of the enemy," a veteran observed, except in the trench itself.
