This well preserved rifle pit is one of many that extended across this hilltop and along the entire front. It marks the most advanced Federal position in this sector, only 50 yards from similar Confederate pits on the opposite crest.

Soldiers posted in these depressions gave early warning of any unusual enemy movements. Because they were so close to the enemy, many of these positions could be occupied only at night.
