Caption: Custer Overruns Emack's Confederates
Additional Description: Looking from the marker location past the park entrance east toward Pennsylvania Highway 16 (Buckanan Trail). The old Furnace Road, Mentzer Gap Road, Pennersville Road, and Emmitsburg and Waynesboro Pike all intersected in the vicinity of the modern road intersection. Custer overran Captain Emack's Confederate rear guard here. Confederates fed reinforcements into the fray, but the Federals continued to press the Confederates down the hill westward toward Rouzerville.
