General Winfield Scott Hancock visited Gettysburg for the last time in November of 1885 just three months before he died. He posed for photographs at his designated wounding site which he claimed was incorrect as well as at the High Water Mark in front of the Copse of Trees. In the then and now below, the General is seen standing at left center on the future Hancock Avenue in front of the Copse as it appeared just 22 years after the battle. Gettysburg battlefield historian John Bachelder is standing second from the left. The now shot is a similar view I happen to have taken, though not a perfect match to Tipton's 1885 photograph.
