Different Perspective / by Dave Hileman

This is a view of Little Round Top, a keystone of the battle of Gettysburg. The heights commanded a flank of the long Union line and it was imperative that the high ground stay in Union hands. The attacks on the hill came beyond the trees here and on to the extreme east where the Union line was anchored by the 20th Maine. This shot with the sun nearly set giving a nice glow to the tall grasses was from the northwest edge near the old Millerstown Road and was held by Weed's brigade.
