Caption: Marker and The Field of Lost Shoes
Additional Description: Visitors are walking across the "Field of Lost Shoes." At the time of the battle, the field was planted in wheat and it had rained hard for three days. Advancing soldiers quickly reduced it to a field of sticky mud that sucked the shoes off the Confederates' feet.
