Near here on June 27, 1862, three Confederate brigades under General Cadmus M. Wilcox ascended this hill, broke the Union line, and later assisted in capturing a battery of artillery. Wilcox's own Alabama brigade spearheaded the charge, losing nearly 600 men killed and wounded of the 1850 soldiers in the four regiments.
