Gettysburg Battlefield 2013 - 150th Anniversary - part 2, McPherson's Ridge and the Chambersburg Pike.

The view to the east along the Chambersburg Pike towards Gettysburg.  The confederate advance began along this road in the early dawn of 1st July 1863.

 The visitors centre, close to the McPherson farm.
 The McPherson Barn as it appears today from the Chambersburg Road.
 149th Pennsylvanian memorial with McPherson's Barn and Reynold's Wood in the background.
 Reynolds' memorial (1 Corps CO) by the Chambersburg Road.
And again!
 Buford's memorial again by the Chambersburg Road.  Interesting that the cavalry commander is shown on foot.
