An image I made while standing near the bottom and just outside of the "Triangle Field" at Gettysburg, just across the road from Houck's Ridge and Devil's Den. The triangle is about a three acre area of field containing large stones bordered on the top and bottom of the hill by this stone wall and on the western edge by woods. On the afternoon of July 2, 1863, the second day of the Battle, a portion of Union Brigadier General J. H. Hobart Ward’s Brigade met the Confederate brigades of Brigadier Generals J. B. Robertson, Henry L. Bennin, George T. Anderson and Evander M. Law in battle. After many assaults, retreats and re-assaults the Confederate forces were able to cause Ward's forces to retreat across the valley to Cemetery Ridge north of Little Round Top. This left Devil's Den secured for the Confederates who could then continue onward to Little Round Top.
For those with an interest in battlefield ghosts, "The Triangle" is generally regarded to be the area noted by Gettysburg ghost hunters as being one of the most spiritually active on the Gettysburg Battlefield.
