One of the many giant rock formations that make up the "Devil's Den" area of the Gettysburg National Military Park in Adams County, Pennsylvania.
"On July 2, 1863, Smith's Union battery used the hill to counterfire on Confederate artillery prior to McLaws' Assault at 5:30 pm. Against Hood's Assault that started at 4 pm, Devils Den was defended by Birney's 1st Division as the far left position from The Peach Orchard Salient of the III Corps. The hill was captured when the "First Texas Regiment, having pressed forward to the crest of the hill and driven the enemy from his battery", and Anderson's Confederates used the hill for the first attack on The Wheatfield." Total casualty estimates are over 800 for the Union, more than 1,800 among the Confederates.
