Maybe I’m just lucky, but I never see many other tourists when I catch the photo bug at the Eleventh Corps Line. I particularly like this photo because of the combination of visuals: monuments, artillery, the famous Gettysburg rocks, and a Civil War-style wooden fence. The fence surrounds the Old Alms House Cemetery. (See my post of August 12, 2013).
The monuments are, from left to right, the 25TH / 75TH Ohio Infantry; Gen. Francis Barlow’s portrait statue; a marker denoting the actions of Battery G, 4TH United States Artillery, represented here by four Napoleons; and the 17TH Connecticut Infantry.
