Here’s a view of Cemetery Ridge taken from McMillan’s Woods a few years back. You can see a number of large monuments (from left to right, the United States Regulars, the Vermont State Memorial, and the Pennsylvania State Memorial) as well as quite a few smaller monuments. The Nicholas Codori farm adds a pop of color to the view. Fun fact: Did you know that’s not the original barn? (I know . . . I was disappointed too). I like the branches framing the photo, as well as the fence-line and rock wall (two Gettysburg staples). And a blue-sky day is rather a rarity for us while visiting Gettysburg :-)
