Another picture from when there was corn looking back towards Parson's Hill.
The fighting in the Cornfield has a special pull for me because the 21st Wisconsin was engaged there. I didn't have a relative in the 21st, but all Wisconsin regiments have a special connection for me. The 21st was a brand new regiment and this was their first combat. They used the corn to hide and delivered a volley in the face of the 1st Tennessee, eventually capturing that flag. I have seen that flag in a museum in Nashville. The 21st was pretty beat up in the assault but it helped buy some time to strengthen the line on Starkweather's Hill.
Here is part of the marker in the cornfield.
