Gettysburg’s Oak Ridge Tower Panorama: July 2010

On the left the camera is pointing to the northeast and on the right of the view the camera is pointing to the southeast. For the larger JPEG version click here, or you can download the uncompressed TIFF file (26.7 MB) here. This view was taken at approximately 4:45 PM on Friday, July 2, 2010.

As part of our continuing series showing different panoramas on the Gettysburg Battlefield, today we’re showing you our customary view from the Oak Ridge Tower. In the right portion of the panorama, you will see that Gettysburg College was hosting lacrosse camp during this week’s anniversary of the battle. End of the week scrimmages were going on as the panorama was taken. The parked cars are those of the parents, coming to watch their kids play and then take them home from camp.

You might also notice, that compared with our May panorama from this view, Gettysburg has seen very little rain this summer season.

Here is our panorama, which we have labeled to point out some of the landmarks in this view. Click on the image above for a larger version.
