This photo was taken from Gen. Lee’s headquarters, showing (from left to right) one of the artillery pieces perched near the house; the back of the entrance sign; Route 30 / Chambersburg Pike, Reynolds’ Woods in the distance, and the McPherson barn at far right. Also visible is the cannon barrel marking the headquarters location.
Hopefully overlooking the blurriness, if you click for a larger view and scan Reynolds Avenue (running from left to right in the center of the photo) you can perhaps make out the string of monuments and markers: The 142ND Pennsylvania, Gen. Doubleday’s portrait statue, the 8TH New York Cavalry, a headquarters marker for the 3RD Division of the 1ST Federal corps, Battery L, 1ST New York Artillery, two Cavalry Corps markers, the cannon marking Gen. Doubleday’s headquarters, the 8TH Illinois Cavalry, and a marker for the 1ST Army Corps. You can also see the 150TH Pennsylvania in the distance, located along Stone-Meredith Avenue near the barn.
