I have put a great deal of time into Cedar Mountain and still I am not finished.




I am standing on the Crittenden Lane taking this picture looking N-East, Cedar Mountain to the right.  The corn field according to what I have seen runs along the little rise in the background.  If the CSA soldiers were on the ground 10-20 yards from Critteden Lane waiting for an attack, as one can see, the break of the hill, soldiers can't be seen through cornfield pryer to attacking, both army's were thrown together rather quickly.  That rise in the ground continues on around to the left through the wheat field and on over into the brushy field.

to be cont.'

An ancestor of mine was killed by an artilery shell there, Gen. Charles Winder. Another, Gen. Lloyd Tilghman was killed by an artilery shell at Champions Hill fired from the battery of another ancestor in the Chicago Merchantile Battery.

All I found were some small stones with the units on them where the battle finally ended. If you follow the trail to the end of the path which is through the wheat field.  The stones are to the right of this field marker.

Down the road on the right about 300-400 hundred yards was a house that they carried Winder to.  I stop there about and asked a fellow if he new of a house foundation and he new nothing and a little hostile to my asking!

The battle field looks to have been preserved very good. Just watched a thing on Ox Hill. A shame that the places our ancestors occupied so long ago there on both sides has vanished, due to progress. I would rather have the battle field.
