The Lotz House

National Register of Historic Places

1111 Columbia Ave

 
 

 

 
 

This was the home of the Albert Lotz family who sought refuge in the basement of the Carterís home during the battle.  From this vicinity, Federal Colonel Emerson Opdycke's brigade rushed up to close the gap in the Federal line opened by the charging Confederates. The clashing troops engaged in pitched hand-to-hand fighting.
