The 42nd New York Infantry Memorial, 3rd brigade, 2nd division, 2nd corps, Gettysburg Battlefield. The Gettysburg Battlefield was the worst this country has ever seen four (4) out of ten (10) were killed in just this one Battle. It waged on July 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 1863, military engagements of the Battle of Gettysburg within and around the borough of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Locations of military engagements extend from the 4 acre site of the first shot at Knoxlyn Ridge on the west of the borough, to East Cavalry Field on the east. A military engagement prior to the battle was conducted at the Gettysburg Railroad trestle over Rock Creek, which was burned on June 27
Within 10 miles of the Maryland/Pennsylvania state line, the Gettysburg Battlefield is situated in the Gettysburg-Newark Basin of the Pennsylvania Piedmont entirely within the Potomac River Watershed near the Marsh and Rock creeks' triple point with the Susquehanna River Watershed (near Oak Hill) occupying an area 3.33 miles x 5.33miles. Military engagements occurred within and around the borough of Gettysburg (1863 pop. 2,400), which remains the population center for the battlefield area at the intersections of roads that connect the borough with 10 nearby Pennsylvania and Maryland towns (e.g., antebellum turnpikes to Chambersburg, York, and Baltimore.)
