The Angle 1

From the Right

While many accounts of Pickett's Charge emphasize that the Union had the high ground and was protected by stone walls, neither the slope nor the walls are that impressive. Here, the wall is shown as knee high. The wall shown is from The Angle. The people shown are walking towards the Union rear. In the background is the High Water Mark tablet.

Another shot from the right side of the Angle. The tree at right is growing right out of the Angle of the two stone walls. To the left is the Clump of Trees.

A close up directly at the Angle Tree. While one boulder reaches waist height, the bulk of the walls are only knee high. However, there is a significant drop on the far side of the wall. Coming in from the far side, one has to climb up to roughly chest height.
