The hike will begin at Tour Stop 18 and will detail the officers and men that fought under Colonel Pugh’s direction and learn about the struggles they faced defending against multiple fierce Confederate attacks, the park says.

You will need to pre-register for “In Hell Before Night: Pugh’s Brigade at the Peach Orchard.” You can do so by calling and reserving a spot at (731) 689-5696.
