A very, very misty morning at the top of Little Round Top, some of the only high ground at the historical site of the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. The site of Pickett's Charge is in the very farthest field you can see, from the distant line of trees at the left of the photo. Soldiers on the Confederate side at first walked and then sprinted through the July heat across the extent of that field, taking gun and cannon fire from the Union troops. The effort was in vain, with only a few Confederates making it to the Union line where they were either killed or captured. Reports from the battle explain that not only did Pickett's men take fire from the Union troops on the other side of the field, but it was possible that the canons atop Little Round Top were also firing. I can only imagine the fear, the peril, and how different this must have looked on those fated days. 2010-2013.
