Timbers Farm - Gettysburg
Foundations are all that remain of the Timbers Farm (Weikert during the battle) at Gettysburg, seen here surrounded by trees near Brooke Avenue, but now exposed by recent tree removal in the park service's restoration. Confederates advancing on Union troops on the second day of fighting passed around the farm buildings, and they remained in Confederate hands until the withdrawal. (Click image for larger view).
