The Hole


Another panorama series, panning from right to left. This point is fairly close to Little Round Top, near the Sixth Corp. First Division memorial. The strip of grass is at its narrowest point. In the above shot, one can see how Sickles would be looking up hill holding this position. He felt he was in a "hole," and thus moved forward to higher ground.

Straight across.

Looking left the slope begins to reverse. Little Round Top is further to the left. Beyond a few obstructing trees, one can catch a glimpse of the Valley of Death.
