  The McCoull House (left, above) was in the center of the Confederate salient, called the "Mule Shoe" because of it's shape. The house survived the battle only to burn down in 1921. By 2000 a large tree grew inside the foundation (right, above).

  The huge tree that was growing in the foundation (see the 2000 photograph, above) has been removed.

Also, the stones marking the foundation have been replaced, making the layout of the house easier to visualize. (It's easier to see the old stones in the photograph below labeled "View toward the Harrison House foundation (8) (arrow) From the McCoull House foundation(7) - 2004")
