    I really like this painting of General Warren, the real "savior of Round Top" that depicts the moment he discovered that Longstreet had the AoP flanked and made the historically critical decision to order troops to the hill. Unfortunately, I don't have a matching photo, but this one is close.

    This is great!! Thanks for posting this!

    Oh, if only we could read the thought bubble that must've been in Warren's head right about then....

    You got pretty close. The rock behind the flag in tne painting looks like the rock the statue is standing on.

    I think you are right, @Jimklag. Next time I am in GB I will try to match this scene with a photo. This was a similar view I happened to have in my files, not an intentional match.

    I am a firm believer that lucky is better than good.

    You mean when the blood drained from his face when he realised the third corps had been right all day.

    I think that you had better get right back up there to LRT and snap us a perfect "Now" picture :D Until then, I will have to console myself with this beautiful work of art :smile:
