Photographer: Craig Swain
Taken: December 22, 2007
Caption: Buford's Attacks
Additional Description: Looking southeast, just to the left of the previous photo (Number 4 above), in this frame can be seen the approaches used by the 2nd U.S. Cavalry to attack the Confederate line, which was just beyond the house in the left of frame. Crossing just behind the house was the 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry. Later companies from the 2nd Massachusetts and the 3rd Wisconsin Infantry would advance through the wheat field here and finally drive the Confederate right flank back from Ruffans Run (which is to the left of the house in this frame).
