5. Jackson's Field of View
Looking to the east, past the Rummel Farm (to the right out of frame). In the distant center, through the tree lines, stands the buildings around the Lott farm. Federal cannon under Lt. Chester were posted just south (right) of there. Most of McIntosh's Federal brigade were posted in the woods to the north (left) of the Lott farm. If one looks closely, the Gregg Cavalry Shaft is visible on the far ridge, just in front of the Lott Woods.
