Emmitsburg Road looking South

Here you’re looking south from the Codori barn, down Emmitsburg Road toward the Klingle Farm on the left. Past the Klingle Farm and out of site of this photo is The Wheatfield. Southern battlelines crossed Emmitsburg Road (from camera right to camera left) on July 2nd, 1863, driving the Federals back to Cemetery Ridge. The following day, battlelines of Pickett’s division crossed the road again in the climatic attack known today as Pickett’s Charge.
