Caption: Brownsville Pass From the East Side
Additional Description: Looking at South Mountain from just east of Burkittsville, this gives an appreciation for the rolling terrain around South Mountain, and the imposing heights where the Confederates defended. Brownsville Pass Road runs sharply northeast-southwest across the crest of the mountain. Elements Semmes' Brigade advanced to the farmland in at the base of the mountain during the fighting at Crampton's Gap (just to the right out of frame). Manly's Artillery remained on the top of the mountain, firing upon the Federal flanks in the valley.
