The 54th PA fought a fighting retreat through this field of cedar trees. The soldiers named this area "The Bloody Cedars." When the 54th PA's monument was dedicated, some of the survivors took seedlings home with them. Information from the park states that some of these cedars still stand at a cemetary in Johnstown PA where some of the 54th's members are buried.
