Caption: 17th Michigan Field
Additional Description: In this field in Fox's Gap, members of the 17th Michigan Volunteer Infantry faced off against the Confederates on September 14, 1862. The modern road cuts across the location of the stone walls mentioned on the marker. Initially the 17th Michigan stood at a point further down the east slope of South Mountain. The general attack carried them up the ridge line and across the crest close to the Reno Monument and forward toward the present day marker location.
