|Nice and shiny in May 2013|
Every time I visit Gettysburg, I make it a point to take some really nice cannon photos, and I’ve finally been remembering to make a note of which battery they represent . . . saves me a lot of research! On the last visit I focused on artillery scattered throughout West Confederate Avenue, Warfield Ridge, and the Devil’s Den area. The cannon shown above is a Parrott Rifle from Wingfield’s Battery, which was part of Lane’s Battalion.
