The Ponds Area at Bauer Park, Madison, CT

This was esentially the battle area for the skimishes.  The camps were just off the lower edge of the sketch, Confederates being just below the Main House (surrounded by a driveway), and the Union farther down the unimproved dirt road.  The Union artillery was sited at the corner of the barn, the Confederate artillery above the top of the drawing, centered behind the two sections of brush and the small walking bridge.  The center hill was fortified with cheveaux des frise, and frazees.  The Union attack was in three sections, one down the path by the lake, the second between the heavy brush and the hill, and the third from behind the barn.
