General Couch found the uneven terrain in this section of the Union position less favorable for artillery. He chose to push his infantry well forward of the guns, placing brigades under Abercrombie, Howe, and Palmer on this ground to prevent the attacking southerners from staging a successful assault on the Union guns.

In this vicinity, and to your right, Couch's men repelled charges of D.H. Hill's Confederate division during the heat of the battle. As the advanced Union brigades became fought out, reinforcements marched past the West House and arrived here to assist Couch's regiments.
