Video: Confederate burials in woods at Malvern Hill?

Possible evidence of the burial sites of two Southern soldiers may be found in woods where Confederates sought shelter from intense Union artillery fire during the Battle of Malvern Hill on July 1, 1862. The side-by-side ditches, noted by a small National Park Service marker, are just off a path about 15 yards into the woods along Carters Mill Road. For more on Malvern Hill, the last of the Seven Days Battles, check out this post on my blog.
