1. The Crew House Marker
Inscription. The Crew House -- also known during the war as Dr. Mellert's -- is a key landmark of the battlefield. In 1862, numerous outbuildings were located close to the house, and a small orchard stood nearby. The original house burned in the 1870's, and this structure stands on the foundations of the wartime building.

Federal artillery located in the yard anchored the left of the Union line, and other guns unlimbered in the lane to your left.
