    by doug48

after the massacre of the new york zouaves the confederates pressed east to chinn ridge. chinn ridge was the site of benjamin chinn house called hazel plain. from the left came wave after wave of confederates. at this moment the only union troops facing them were two regiments of the ohio infantry. the confederate columns divided around the chinn house and swept toward the fence line (pictured). less that 100 yards away, suddenly the ohioans rose out of the high grass and fired. after ten minutes of close range combat the confederates forced the ohioans off of chinn ridge toward henry hill. picture number two is the chinn house in 1862. today only the foundation remains. chinn ridge is stop number 10 on the batttlefield auto tour.
