Photographer: Craig Swain
Taken: November 11, 2008
Caption: 53rd Pennsylvania Battle Line
Additional Description: Looking at the monument from across the road. The left flank marker stone stands beside Brooke's Brigade tablet on the right. The right flank stone is on the left in this view. Note how the ground slopes down to Rose Run behind the monument. The slope and rocky outcroppings afforded the 53rd and other elements in Brooke's Brigade a natural defensive position. Unfortunately its flanks were unprotected.
