Photographer: Craig Swain
Caption: Ward's Line
Additional Description: Looking from near the Warren Statue on Little Round Top at Houck's Ridge. (Double click the image to see fine details of the panorama.) The Devil's Den is on the left, where Sickles Avenue passes up the ridge. The Rose Woods form a tree line across the top of the ridge, extending to the west. In the mid-afternoon when Hood's Division first attacked, the 4th Maine was deployed in the low area there, refusing the line. The rest of the Brigade formed a line within the Rose Woods, in order from left to right - 124th New York, 86th New York, 20th Indiana, and 99th Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvanians were later sent to reinforce the 4th Maine. Later when the 40th New York and 6th New Jersey arrived, they deployed in the valley between Houck's Ridge and Little Round Top.
