Walcott’s 3RD Massachusetts Battery is located along Wheatfield Road at the John Weickert farm. The monument itself dates from 1885 and is flanked by two Model 1857 12-pounder Napoleons. In the distance is the 93RD Pennsylvania Infantry, and part of a granite marker can seen behind the right-hand cannon (left wheel), which is probably the Third Brigade, Sixth Corps marker. To the left of the 93RD PA there seems to be a small “block” which doesn’t appear to be a boulder (though there are some boulders near it). This may be a flank marker, but I couldn’t identify it. My favorite feature of the photo is the old stone wall at front. If stones could talk . . .
