The Cornfield


Miller's Cornfield of Death

. In Miller's Cornfield, the Confederates were within the stalks. The Union Artillery blasted them with shot & shell killing thousands.

When the battle was over one Union General wrote " every stalk of corn was cut as closely as could have been done with a knive, and the slain lay as they had stood in their ranks a few moments before."
