2. Position Marker and the McLean Farm
The farm is currently used by the National Park Service as service buildings and personnel residences. The recent tree clearing on Oak Hill has nearly restored this location it's wartime appearance. However, the railroad was a post-war addition to the landscape.

3. McLean Farm from the Observation Tower
Looking at the farm from the Oak Ridge Observation tower. The Mummasburg Road runs near the base of the tower (foreground here), with flank markers for the 90th Pennsylvania representing the right of the First Corps line. The 45th New York was the left most unit in the Eleventh Corps line, as it advanced in the early afternoon of July 1. Skirmishers of the 45th reached the base of Oak Ridge along the Mummasburg Road, with the center of the line just southeast of the McLean Farm.
