Cornfield Trail Guide-Stop 4

The Smoketown Road

You are now walking on the original route of the Smoketown Road that cut through the East Woods. Cornfield Avenue in front of you did not exist at the time of the battle. The two armies fought in these woods on the night before the battle, with each side losing a regimental commander as darkness fell upon the battlefield.
