Gracie's salient, further north on the Confederate line, is notable as the point in front of which General John B. Gordon's gall attack on Fort Stedman, the last desperate effort of the Confederates to break through the Federal cordon. The views of Gracie's salient show the French form of chevaux-de-frise, a favorite protection against attack much employed by the Confederates.

When the order came to go forward, they did not flinch, but hurled themselves bravely against fortifications far stronger than their own. Three columns of a hundred picked men each moved down the sleep-dazed Federals could offer effective resistance, Gordon's men had possession of the Fort and the batteries.
