Directions and Description

 You may want to walk over to the map marker located about 200 yards from the parking lot. It’s an optional stop on the tour. The historical marker itself is in a state of disrepair and is scheduled for replacement.

The map on this marker shows where the positions of the opposing forces were around 11:00 a.m. on October 23, 1864.

Walk west down E 60th Street and turn left (south) on Manchester Trafficway. Just off the street where Manchester Trafficway makes a sharp turn to the right (west) is a brick pedestal on which there is a map of the battlefield.
