$30.00 (Tax Exempt)

A ridge line that was not marked on 1863 maps dominated the planning and execution of the Confederate offense and Union defense on the second and third day of the battle of Gettysburg. This ridge line extends from the Codori farm south along the Emmitsburg Road to the Peach Orchard. This tour is a terrain analysis that will emphasize how the presence of that ridge dominated the actions of Robert E. Lee, James Longstreet, Lafayette McLaws, George Meade, Henry Hunt, Dan Sickles and other Union and Confederate leaders on July 2nd and 3rd, 1863. Please meet at the North Carolina Memorial and be prepared to drive or car pool to the Peach Orchard. The tour includes some walking over difficult terrain and periods of standing
