It lies east of Braithwaite Manor near the southeast corner of Scarlett Meadows. The site is strewn with dilapidated breastworks, broken-down cannons, and various other debris from the battle.
According to the Saint Denis Times, the engagement was known as the Battle of Scarlett Meadows and took place in 1864. Among the battle's (fictional) Confederate leaders was General Quincy T. Harris, whom the newspaper describes as a courageous and heroic commander.
Due east of the Glade lies an abandoned church. On the upper landing, which requires sprinting and jumping, is a bird's nest containing the Cigarette Card for the Steam Locomotive - 1814 - George Stephenson. Also on a wall on the upper landing is Aged Pirate Rum.
Beneath the collapsed wall in the church is a lockbox containing a large jewelry bag.
There were more than twenty-five actual major battles fought in Louisiana during the Civil War. The Battle of Scarlett Meadows appears to be based primarily on the actual River Campaign, which was a series of Union army maneuvers directed into Louisiana during the spring of 1864. Confederate forces suffered heavy casualties but managed to repel the offensive.
The battlefield suggests that the battle was fought with trench warfare, similarly to World War One. The real-life American Civil War did feature some trench warfare, making this realistic.
