Photographer: Craig Swain
Taken: September 17, 2007
Caption: The Division's Right Flank
Additional Description: Hancock's Brigade formed on the right of the Division's Front and closed upon Sedgwick's Division. Here, from a point in the fields between the Smoketown Road (seen on the right with the utility poles) and Cornfield Avenue (on the left), the marker location is in the copse of trees on the right side of the frame. Hancock's Brigade exited the East Woods directly in front of the camera. Irwin's Brigade was on the right of that, astride and to the south of the Smoketown Road.
NOTE: The location from which this photo was taken is private property (although bounded on all sides by Park ground). The park service periodically gains permission from the owner to conduct guided tours through this area.
