In an effort to show some other panorama views around the battlefield, today we are concentrating on the Pickett’s Charge Fields. We are at General Robert E. Lee’s position on July 3, 1863 during Pickett’s Charge. The “Point of Woods” is behind us, as is the wayside exhibit and audio station describing some Confederate incidents at Pickett’s Charge.
On the left the camera is pointed northeast. On the right, the camera is pointed southwest. On the other (southwest) side of the cannon is the red Alexander Spangler barn. This view was taken at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, March 8, 2010. For a medium-sized version of the panorama click here. For the larger JPEG version, click here.
