The above image was taken from the viewing tower, just on the eastern extreme of the "Bloody Lane'. It looks west along the positions of D.H.Hill's Division which they called the quite sector... a few minutes later all was to change. The view does not allow for a true picture of the lay of the land. The lane was situated on the reverse side of a hill when looking out from the lane visibility was reduced to between 30 to 100 meters.
'A Confederate Soldiers view'.
This image was taken looking out from the Confederate line and hopefully will give a better view of how close the lines of battle were. This was probably the longest field of fire, with visibility out to roughly 100 meters.
All along this position were numerous regimental monuments to those who had fallen.
The day after the battle
And the day of my visit and roughly the same position.
