Culp’s Hill is one of those battlefield locales I only “got into” recently, but once I did, it seemed there were countless new places to discover. This photo was taken across from the 1ST Maryland Battalion CSA and shows the route that the Marylanders probably took as they surged toward Pardee Field on the morning of July 2ND. Most notable is the 29TH Pennsylvania monument at center left.
If you click for a larger photo you can just make out the stone wall bordering Pardee Field in the distance. The inset at bottom right shows a zoom of the wall (as well as a boulder shaped like a turtle shell). As with any other photo featuring Gettysburg boulders, it amazes me to think that these are the same rocks the soldiers saw and perhaps utilized as hiding places and sniping platforms. Fascinating stuff.
