We present you with a weekly panorama from Little Round Top, and would like to show you monthly panoramas from the Longstreet Tower on Seminary Ridge as well. We took photographs of our October panorama on October 9, 2008 but never posted them as we were distracted later that day by the burial of the 147th New York flank marker.

Starting from the left, or north, the Johnson House (the stone part of which was the Warfield House in 1863) is part of the white cluster of structures. Above the white cluster the Eternal Light Peace Memorial (Peace Light) is visible on Oak Hill. The red barn above and to the right of the white cluster of buildings is the Alexander Spangler Barn. The light colored old Cyclorama Building is visible on Cemetery Hill. The Sherfy House and Barn are clearly visible west of the Emmittsburg Road, and the Pennsylvania Monument is in the distance on Cemetery Ridge. The Peach Orchard is the green patch of grass with the Trostle Barn just visible above it. Then Little Round Top with the Rose House visible below it. To the right (south) of Little Round Top is Big Round Top.
