Okay, so, I’ve been coming to Gettysburg since I was 8, and this last trip was the first time I ever walked inside the Peach Orchard. There’s that inviting sidewalk and informational tablet and everything, but I just never got around to the “journey” until now. The “sidewalk” isn’t long, but it gives you the opportunity to walk *in* the Peach Orchard without (a) being attacked by ticks, and (b) tramping where you’re not supposed to.
On photo #1, the monument you see at right is the 141ST Pennsylvania Infantry. The informational plaque can be seen at upper left. Photo #2 shows “The Peach Orchard Salient”, the plaque that explains the fighting here on July 2ND. The man whose portrait can be seen is Confederate Gen. Joseph Kershaw.
