The two monuments dominating this photo are the portrait statue of Gen. Andrew Humphreys and the 11th Massachusetts Infantry. Seen at left is the Emmitsburg Road. Also, two farms are visible . . . the Abraham Bryan barn at bottom left, and the Nicholas Codori barn to the right of Gen. Humphreys. Both picket fencing and wood fencing is visible. I think (though I may be wrong) that the trees to the right of the 11th Massachusetts are actually the Copse at the High Water Mark.
PVT. JAMES M. ROBERTSON

Pvt. Robertson, a farmer, enlisted in March 1862. He was killed in battle and later buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh. Unfortunately, I was able to find little information pertaining to his life.
