You have reached the farthest point to which any organized Confederate infantry advanced on July 1. Two simple wooden structures stood within this cleared area. They are thought to have housed the slaves working the Crew farm.

During the twilight fighting, part of the brigade of General Paul J. Semmes reached the slave cabins and used the structures for cover. A handful of men, mostly Louisianians, pushed a few feet farther through the smoke toward the Union guns, where they met General Thomas Meagher's famous "Irish Brigade." The Federal infantry won this collision and ended the threat to their cannon.
