As many of you know, on July 1, 1863, the 157th NY (of Schimmelfennig's Brigade) were sent to support Barlow's division, who had extended themselves north of Gettysburg and were under heavy attack. The New Yorkers were stopped in their tracks by the Georgians of Doles' Brigade. So where did this conflict take place? There is a marker along Carlisle St. that supposedly locates the position of the 157th, but I found it helpful to actually visit the ground and take into account the terrain. Recently this area was covered by a corn field, but now that the ground is cleared, I noticed that there is a defined ridge where the 157th would have had to have been initially positioned in order to have been able to engage the Confederates. My picture is where I believe that they were located as they began to engage the Georgians. The inset map shows the location of the camera and the direction of view.
