Caption: Warren Hesitates
Additional Description: Looking from The Old Plank Road (CR 621) over the valley around Mine Run. On the morning of November 30, Federal II Corps commander General G. K. Warren assessed the situation from here and concluded any attack on the Confederate works further to the west would be fruitless. The proposed attack route included fording of Mine Run and advancing around 300 yards against a well dug in Confederate line. Warren declined to attack, and called for his superior, General Meade to inspect the situation himself. Meade concurred and the Mine Run Campaign was effectively over.
