I’ve taken a lot of shots looking down over Oak Ridge, but on most of them, this solitary Napoleon in the foreground was the only artillery piece. Now the gang’s all here. There aren’t too many places in Gettysburg that escape visitors’ attention as prime photography spots (if there are any at all) but Oak Ridge may get the short end of the stick in that regard. Also, check out the wooden fence and the simplicity of the scene.
