Artillery on Powers Hill - Gettysburg

A monument to one of three Union batteries posted on Powers Hill stands in isolation in heavy woods near Granite Schoolhouse Lane at Gettysburg. The hill was a better artillery platform during the battle, when trees did not obscure the sightlines to Culp's Hill. (Click image for larger view.)

I saw this while I was there but did not know what the area was called. We had gone over that way looking for hospital road. Thanks for the information on it. Next time I go I will be sure and photograph the monument.
