Cold Harbor Battlefield Park Walking TrailThe Union front lines lay 325 yards west of here; reserve troops occupied this ground. These Union pits may have been a stop along the relay system that brought reinforcements and supplies to the forward line. Imagine soldiers huddled inside these trenches, with their rifles, canteens, blankets, and haversacks, waiting for the call to the front. "The baking down of the summer sun became intolerable," remarked one veteran, "that the line of men would canopy the whole trench with their blankets."
