The Peach Orchard

 

        This peach orchard belonged to Sarah Bell during the battle, and in the morning of April 6th, bullets from the approaching Confederate army sliced through these trees, causing several observers to compare the peach blossoms to falling snow.  The relentless Confederate attack on the Union left continued here until 2 P.M., when the Union soldiers began a fighting retreat back to Pittsburg Landing.  The W. Manse George Cabin, pictured below, is near the peach orchard, and remains the only log cabin still found on the battlefield.
