7. View from the Left Flank
Looking from the regiment's left flank marker stone toward the monument, with the right flank stone visible in the background. The position held by the 10th Pennsylvania Reserves linked with the 9th Massachusetts on the left (behind the camera) and the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves on the right, straddling what is today Warren Avenue. By the time this line was established the Confederate main attack on Little Round Top had failed. The regiments here engaged in heavy skirmishing throughout July 3.
