Howard Avenue

Howard Avenue park road traces the line Major General Oliver Howard’s 11th Corps.  With their right flank in a weak position on a small hill now called Barlows Knoll, the confederate troops were able to turn the flank and lead to the collapse of the corps entire line.  The collapse sealed the faith of the 1st Corp west of town and the entire union line collapsed.  Howard had left one of his divisions on Cemetery Hill and that became the rally point of the rest of the 11th and the 1st Corps.
