Perryville - Starkweather's Hill

Watching the rout of Terrill's Brigade off of Parson's Hill, Starkweather made the next stand on the next ridgeline, which became Starkweather's Hill. Here he formed 12 cannon with his brigade, plus remnants of Terrill's. Maney and Stewart eventually took Starkweather's Hill but in the process were severely battered.

Here are two views from Starkweather's position. The cornfield can be seen at the bottom of the hill.
And when Starkweather was driven off the hill the Union just ended up making a stand on the next ridgeline, which is seen here.
