There’s nothing quite like McMillan Woods and West Confederate Avenue in springtime. Not only was I treated to an array of colors, but there’s so much to see in this shot. At first glance it doesn’t appear to be much; a road, some cannon, and lots of trees. As usual, there’s more than meets the eye. To the left, Little and Big Round Top loom over the storied fields. Two artillery batteries are present on the left side of the road, Wingfield’s Battery (near the path that leads to the North Carolina State Memorial) and the Charlotte Artillery (Graham’s Battery). To the right is the meadow facing the Emanuel Pitzer farm.
