Additional Description: Looking west from the high ground near the marker location. The Col. Sideny Burbank's Brigade was at the fore of the attack. Burbank's men were U.S. Regulars: the 2nd, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th and 17th U.S. Infantry. Their line was roughly straddling what is today the walking trail, but with elements both north and south of the Pike (seen to the left). Behind and to the right of Burbank was the brigade of Col. Patrick O'Rourke, the 5th, 140th, and 146th New York Infantry. To the left (north) of Burbank was another Brigade of U.S. Regulars under General Romeyn Ayres - the 3rd, 4th, 12th and 14th U.S. Infantry.
