The Bushman Farm. The white barn on the right is below Big Round Top. The stone and brick house on the left is below Little Round Top. This view was taken from the west facing east at approximately 2:15 PM on Friday, April 18, 2008.

The Bushman Farm, located between Warfield Ridge (Seminary) Ridge and the Devils Den/Round Tops area is the subject of today’s pictures. Hood’s Texas Brigade, and later Benning’s Georgia Brigade passed through the Bushman Farm as they moved to the Round Tops and Devils Den. Farnsworth’s Cavalry Brigade might have attacked in this area around the Bushman and Slyder Farms on July 3rd. Recent research places that action farther to the south. The Star and Banner visited the farm on a Friday afternoon.
