English: "High Water Mark" - Cemetery Ridge, Gettysburg Battlefield
This photo shows the so-called "High Water Mark" as it appears today. This is the location on Cemetery Ridge where the Confederate Army attacked the centre of the Union lines on the 3rd day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Although this attack has been popularly known as "Pickett's Charge" it in fact was executed by three Confederate divisions, commanded by Major Generals George Pickett, J. Johnston Pettigrew, and Isaac R. Trimble, consisting of troops from Gen. James Longstreet's First Corps and A.P. Hill's Third Corps.
This photo looks south along the Ridge with Little Round Top and Big Round Top in the distant background.The monument in the front is the 72nd Pennsylvania Infantry Monument.
