This site marks the center of the fighting that took place during the Battle of Ware Bottom Church on May 20, 1864. The earthworks, which were constructed over a period of time after that battle, represent some of the largest Howlett Line trenches still in existence. Built with a moat in front, a rifle trench on the back and a wide sloping parapet in between, these works presented a formidable obstacle to Union forces. More than 1500 feet of the earthworks are preserved in the park.
