  • Gettysburg photos

    This is the position of the Southern troops trying to get to the "copse" of trees during Pickett's Charge.
    Exactly opposite of the previous photo.

      This is the Union position on Cemetery Hill. The "copse"of trees.
      This is just opposite the other picture.

        Panorama from Little Round Top

        This is fresh off the press. I took this series of shots from Little Round Top two days ago, then pieced them together into a panoramic mural (the fit isn't TOO bad). I also labelled some of the key features. You can see why Little Round Top was the vital ground for most of the Federal line. You can also how well the guns here could enfilade Pickett's Division on July 3, as they crossed the open ground beyond the bulk of the trees between the "Wheatfield" and "Cemetary Hill" labels.

        Remember that a lot of the trees showing today didn't exist at the time of the battle. The current park supervisor intends to remove about 500 acres worth, to make the battlefield appear more like it did in July, 1863.

            Ahhhh, a battlefield, the only place people wouldn't go beserk about them planning to remove 500 acres of trees.
            “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”
