In order to get the Union Canons where they could accurately target the Cinfederate defenses they needed to move the guns over some rolling terrain, frequently while under fire. General Thomas Ransom and his infantry helped the artillery people take apart the cannons, transport them over a path designated by Ransom and then reassemble them. To accomplish this Ransom's men also dug a number of trenches to move more safely.
