Near Battlefield in Greene County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Pulaski Arkansas Battery
Despite the casualties, Captain William E. Woodruff believed his battery had a very successful day of gunning. Woodruff wrote, "Our fire was ... directed where it could be advantageously used without injury to our own troops, sometimes at the opposing battery, at others against the assaults of the enemy on the hill to the northwest..."
The guns in place here today are aimed toward the site of the opposing batteries on "Bloody Hill."
