Caption: Left End of McGilvery's Artillery Line
Additional Description: Looking from across the street from the tablet, to the south. On the morning of July 3, McGilvery exercised operational control over a line of some thirty-nine artillery pieces deployed on a line through this section of the Federal line. Many of the batteries deployed here were attached from other commands. The gunners were protected by a rise of terrain to their front, and were not affected by the Confederate bombardment that afternoon.
