This shot of the Old Alms House Cemetery on the 11TH Corps Line also shows the 107TH Ohio Infantry monument at center. If you click to enlarge the photo you might few more monuments at center left, but they’re difficult to identify. Note that all the graves have colorful flower bouquets, a nice sight to see at a place that seems more or less abandoned. Oak Hill (and its crowning observation tower) can be seen at far center right.
