Sunrise over Little Round Top- Gettysburg PA

The horrible carnage of those 3 days in July 1863, has been replaced by serenity and an almost primal beauty (of course all this before the crowds arrive). Little Round top on the right


"On the second day of battle, most of both armies had assembled. The Union line was laid out in a defensive formation resembling a fishhook. Lee launched a heavy assault on the Union left flank, and fierce fighting raged at Little Round Top, the Wheatfield, Devil's Den, and the Peach Orchard. On the Union right, demonstrations escalated into full-scale assaults on Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill. All across the battlefield, despite significant losses, the Union defenders held their lines."
