6. Right Flank of the 146th New York
The right flank marker stone is within steps from the 155th Pennsylvania Infantry monument. According to accounts, General Meade used a rock outcropping within the 146th New York's line as an observation post on July 3. The exact location of the point is unknown, but could have been the boulders in front of the monument (on the right).
