Sharpshooters - Gettysburg

Car tailights bend around the aptly named Loop adjacent to the Wheatfield, scene of fighting on the second day at Gettysburg. Members of the 2nd company Andrews Sharpshooters, whose monument is pictured, would have been used early in the fighting as skirmishers, strung out along the Union line.
