We know many of you were expecting pictures from the latest Gettysburg “blizzard” but we haven’t shoveled out our driveway yet, and can’t get out. We decided that pictures of snow in our driveway isn’t what drives most visitors to our site, so we are introducing a new panorama. Houck’s Ridge’s “triangular field” is famous among “ghost circles” for having cameras malfunction. So we decided to take a panorama there. This view was also requested by one of the visitors to our site so he could see the tree clearing that has occurred here over the last few years.
The 124th New York Infantry Regiment, among other Union units, defended this position and even charged down this hill during the fighting on July 2, 1863. Attacking towards this position were units from Hood’s Texas Brigade, Law’s Alabama Brigade, and Benning’s Georgia Brigade. For those not familiar with the area, Devil’s Den is behind the camera position.
