Photographer: Craig Swain
Taken: February 21, 2009
Caption: Trostle Farm
Additional Description: Looking from the tablet location to the west at the Trostle Farm. Although the battery was likely placed further south, the view was similar. In the early evening of July 2, the gunners of Battery I could see Bigelow's battery overwhelmed by the 21st Mississippi. And then see the continued advance of those Confederates. Lieut. Watson was wounded and replaced by Lieut. Charles MacConnell. The gunners delayed the Mississippians long enough to buy time for the Federals to counterattack.
