Gettysburg Photo of the Month (May 2016)

Hi everybody,

This month's photo was taken during my trip to Gettysburg in April 2012. These are the fields near the Mississippi and Louisiana Memorials where on July 2nd, 1863, Confederate General William Barksdale's Mississippi Brigade attacked the Federal troops stationed along Cemetery Ridge.  This vicious attack (known as Barksdale's Charge) was eventually repulsed with heavy losses on both sides and General Barksdale was killed.

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
