On the day of the tour, we had pretty good weather, hot throughout the day, showery in the morning but much drier and sunnier after lunch. We decided to follow the free auto tour of the battlefield, available from the Visitor Centre, which largely follows the events roughly in chronological order.
The south end of Reynolds Avenue, looking north, at the time of the battle (c. 11am July 1st) the end of the federal line at the south end of McPherson Ridge. The memorial on the right is to the 121st Pennsylvanian, the extreme left flank unit of Rowley's 1st Brigade, 3rd Div, 1st Corps.
1st Brigade, 3rd Division marker on McPhersons Ridge, the line was held here until c. 3:30pm on 1st July when the federal line was broken from the north and were forced to retire to Seminary Ridge and then, overnight, to Cemetary Ridge.
151st Pennsylvanian Infantry memorial to the north of Reynolds Wood.
OK, so that's most of what we saw before lunch and covers most of the early engagement sites on McPherson's and Oak Ridges. More to follow.
