The Battle of Boydton Plank Road

From Wikipedia.

The Battle of Boydton Plank Road is also known as the 1st Battle of Hatcher's Run and was fought October 27-28, 1864.  Levi Schlegel's 198th Pennsylvania was heavily involved in the fight.

The battle was an attempt by the Union Army to seize the Boydton Plank Road and cut off supplies coming to Lee's Army at Petersnurg that came in on the South Side Railroad, a critical supply line for the Confederates.
