I have many photographs of both the location of the Toothman farm and the battlesite.   Here are but a few.

battlesite.jpg (155618 bytes) Looking northeast towards the battlesite.  On that slope is where the rebels smashed into, and desimated, Gardner's detachment.  Nevertheless, the black troops carried the day.
