The John Slyder farm is located close to Devil's Den along Plum Run. Slyder, a Maryland native, had bought the 75 acre farm in 1849. On July 2nd 1863, Confederate General John B. Hood’s Division swept across Slyder’s farm in its advance toward the Devil’s Den and Little Round Top. The crops and orchards were trampled and destroyed and the farm buildings became a Confederate field hospital. Two months after the battle John sold the farm and moved the family to Ohio. The farm is said to be one of the more active with spirit activity for those drawn to that sort of thing.
Access to the farm is only on foot as this road is for use by the National Park Service vehicles only. It's possible to park on Emmitsburg road and walk down this long road to the farm or to park on Confederate Road and hike the hilly trail into the farm from the east which is what I did.
