The earliest image I have found of the Copse of Trees shown below was taken by William Tipton in 1876. The umbrella shaped Copse is on the right and the Angle is in the middle of the four trees at center of frame. Until last year, I believe the view was from near the Emmitsburg Road straight out from the COT. After more careful examination, it became clear that Tipton's camera was only about half way between the Copse and the ER and was much farther to the left than I originally had believed. The fence running north (left) from the Angle was the key to identifying the proper location. You can see the same fence in my matching now photo I took last September.
