From this spot the observer is viewing the terrain over which General James C. Blunt's 1st Division advanced on the afternoon of December 7, 1862, to attack the Confederate left and relieve the pressure on General F.J. Herron's 2nd and 3rd divisions which had been engaged since early morning. Blunt had been in camp at Cane Hill and was bypassed by General T.C. Hindman's army on the night of December 6. Blunt marched his men to Rhea's Mill on Sunday morning, December 7, and entered the battle here at 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
