On this last trip to Gettysburg I spent a little more time than usual along Doubleday Avenue near Iverson’s Pits, and when I was looking back over my photos from that time, there were a few that really stuck out. First is General Robinson, keeping watch over the Union line. It’s interesting to think that he’s stood at that spot for almost one hundred years.
The autumn view shows Robinson Avenue, and if you look closely, you’ll see a short white flank marker toward the center left. I wasn’t able to determine if it represented the 13TH Massachusetts or the 104TH New York. Just beyond the road is the railroad track, and part of the 11th Corps Line is visible in the distance. It was sad that it’s too far in the distance for me to identify the monuments :-)
