Cemetery Ridge Gettysburg
Photograph - Photograph
Monument to the 1st New York Light Artillery Battery, on the Gettysburg Battlefield site. In the background is the monument to Union Army leader General George Meade. Cemetery Ridge was part of the Union Army's main defensive line on days 2 and 3 of the battle. This image was taken close to the so called High Water Mark, the name given to the most advanced point reached by the Confederate Army. This happened during an infantry attack known as Pickett's Charge on day 3 of the battle.
