Flank markers at Gettysburg always must be taken with a grain of salt, as not always do they represent the actual battle position of the unit. In this case, the flank markers stand on the west side of Slocum Avenue, behind the main Federal lines. The right flank marker is seen to the left side of the photo. The left flank marker is blocked from view behind the tree on the far right of this photo.
