The Wandering Rebel

Gettysburg Wanderings

"...In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear; but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls. And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field, to ponder and dream; and lo! the shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom and the power of the vision pass into their souls..."
--Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain
Colonel of the 20th
Maine at Gettysburg

Starting Point of


 Pickett's Charge Ronny Powell pointing
out the route of Pickett's Charge
    Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain      
        So near, yet so far,
the end point of Pickett's Charge, about 20 feet from
the Union line.
If you look very carefully between the two trees in the upper center, you can see the North Carolina monument at the start of the Charge.
    Here just feet from the Union canon, Gen. Louis Armistead was mortally wounded.   If you look either
side of the tree in the center, you can see
the North Carolina marker, shown above and the marker for Armistead, shown on the left.
