Great pics, the one that shows the PA monument off in the distance is great, as it gives you an idea how long the defensive line of Union artillery batteries was that July 3rd afternoon. Daniel's 9th Michigan battery was right in front of where the PA state monument is now located, much further south of the "Angle" itself. The officers shown in my avatar were all there that day, the 9th's guns fired sideways into Kemper and Armistead's brigades during that advance to the Angle.

Over the hills and far away.
I especially liked the last one with the cannon overlooking the fields crossed by the Confederates.

That field looks as level as a pool table but as we know the ground there is undulating, it must have been an odd sight seeing the confederate ranks appearing then disappearing as they crossed the field.
