3. Fields in Front of Cemetery Hill
The 107th Pennsylvania suffered from high attrition in the first day's fighting at Gettysburg. It was posted briefly in this sector to help hold the key position on the western approaches to Cemetery Hill. In the distance is Seminary Ridge, where the main Confederate lines were set. However, on July 2nd, this section of the line was relatively quite compared to the flanks of the Federal lines.
