4. 145th New York Infantry's Position on July 2nd
The 145th New York, along with other regiments of McDougall's Brigade, formed along a stone wall, on the reverse slope of the lower crest of Culp's Hill. This wall borders Pardee Field. The 145th was withdrawn from this position in the afternoon of July 2 in order to reinforce the Federal left flank. In their absence, Confederates in Steuart's Brigade occupied this ground and maneuvered behind the stone wall to flank Federals defending further up the slope.

5. McDougall's Brigade Position on July 3
From near the 33rd Wisconsin Monument, looking west. McDougall's Brigade was posted in this open field on the morning of July 3, in position to contain any advance of the Confederate forces while Colgrove's Brigade attempted to reoccupy the Federal breastworks on the lower crest of Culp's Hill. While tree growth since the battle and residential buildings have blocked the views, in 1863 the Federals here had a clear view of the lower slope and Spangler's Meadow.
