We often stand at The Peach Orchard talking about Sickle’s Salient, the fight by Graham’s Brigade troops, and note the Excelsior Brigade monument. In this walk we will revive the memories of “BG” Joseph B. Carr’s Brigade troops and their determined stand, facing portions of three Confederate Brigades along the Emmitsburg Road Ridge. How did their determination help secure the time for MG Hancock to scramble and strengthen the Cemetery Ridge line?  We will meet at the intersection of United States and Sickle’s Avenues and once again face the foe. It is fairly easy terrain and an easy walk of less than a mile.
