3. Site of the Bliss House and Barn
Looking south down the line of markers at the Bliss farm site. The house stood near the location of the 1st Delaware and Bliss House (14th Connecticut) markers. The barn stood beyond the fence line. The 1st Delaware was among several regiments that posted skirmishers forward to the Bliss farm in order harass and keep watch on the Confederate lines on Seminary Ridge.
