The path leading from the Virginia Memorial toward the site of the Pickett-Pettigrew-Trimble Charge is a very nice one, rife with photo opportunities. This particular pic was taken at the end of the path. Note the “trail” through the field (though not one I’d take, considering it’s high tick season and I don’t fancy the little bloodsuckers making a meal out of me). From left to right in the distance along Cemetery Ridge you can see: (1) Gen. Meade’s equestrian statue, (2) various monuments and markers; (2) a quite pitiful-looking Copse/High Water Mark; (3) the “Tammany Regiment” New York monument, (4) the U.S. Regulars monument, and (5) the beautiful Nicholas Codori barn (which, sadly, doesn’t date from the time of the battle).
