3rd Michigan - the Peach Orchard

The 3rd Michigan Infantry monument depicts two soldiers at work where they skirmished near The Peach Orchard on the second day. Later, as the fight thickened, they formed a regular line before being forced back among the other troops trying in vain to hold the salient on the Emmitsburg road. (Click image for larger view).
