Battery L Position Indicated by Monument
Photographer: Craig Swain
Taken: November 11, 2008
Caption: Battery L Position Indicated by Monument
Additional Description: Looking from near the 155th Pennsylvania Monument down to Gibbs' Battery monument on the right. The location is also known as Gibbs' Ledge. Two of the battery's 12-pounder Napoleon guns were deployed on the shelf near the monument location in the afternoon of July 2. The artillerymen, assisted by infantry, brought the guns into position by hand due to the rough nature of the terrain. Note the intersection of Crawford Avenue and Wheatfield Road in the upper left of photo.
