Caption: Hays Brigade Advance and Retreat
Additional Description: Looking south from the monument, Hays brigade advanced up from the Dunker Church through here, and later retired past this point. The modern park visitors center is seen in the far distance near the New York State monument spire. The open field mentioned on the marker text was beyond the treeline in center frame. Notice the high ground to the right, part of the rock ledge bordering the plateau running through this part of the battlefield, north to south. The ledge served to divide the fighting in the cornfield, and offer the Federals a position to enfilade Hays' men.
