Waters' Battery

As we continue on the park service's loop we come to a parking area that isn't an official tour stop. A short walk here through the woods takes us to two markers. There are no views here, that's part of the reason the markers are here, to illustrate just how thick the forests were. How they limited movement and sight. Waters' Battery came into position here and received fresh ammunition but couldn't achive a thing. The terrein and trees, plus Union artillery rounds falling in the woods, prevented the battery from moving far enough forward to get into a firing position.
