... this cropped enlargement of the second aerial image shows the sloping ground on which the 8th Connecticut fought. The stories of Private Oliver Case and Corporal Robert Ferriss, killed in action here, are told on my blog. William Pratt, another private in the 8th Connecticut whose story is told on my blog, was wounded and taken captive on this ground. Today, a modern house occupies property near the monument that honors the regiment. ...
.... and this aerial image provides an excellent perspective of one of the most hotly contested pieces of property of the Civil War, David R. Miller's farm and the infamous Bloody Cornfield. At left are the West Woods, where the tall, white Philadelphia Brigade monument peeks out. In 1930, this area was more barren than its present-day appearance.
