I love this shot of the Orange Artillery, which also shows the Eternal Light Peace Memorial, one of many iconic Gettysburg fence-lines, and the marker for Gen. Rodes’ Division of Gen. Ewell’s 2ND Corps. The Parrott Rifle, having recently returned to its rightful place after being whisked away for cleaning and repainting, reflects the autumn sun. I think it’s wonderful how, no matter how long it may take, Gettysburg’s artillery pieces are always given the attention they deserve, fixed up and returned to their posts to represent an integral part of the battle.
