A large "earthwork," over 100 yards
in length was raised on this site by
General Robert E. Lee´s troops
c. 1862.
This fortification was a
fall-back position from which to
defend the Charleston to Savannah
Railroad, an important supply
line for the Confederate Army.

The rail line is located about one mile
