A relic of the battlefield - Gettysburg
Neill Avenue - also known as the "Lost Avenue" because its remote location has left it cut off from easy access - appears much like it did when the veterans returned to place their monuments here at Gettysburg. The short stretch marking the right of the Union infantry has never been paved, and even lacks the wagon ruts and wear that would have existed on the more popular Gettysburg routes before they were modernized.
