July 3, 1863 - Third Day

"Every foot of ground was occupied by men engaged in mortal combat...."
Maj. Edmund Rice, U.S.A.
19th Massachusetts Infantry

The green trail to your left leads to the scene of the climax of Pickett's Charge, the decisive action widely known as the "High Water Mark of the Confederacy." Historic sites along the way include General Meade's headquarters, the Angle, the Copse of Trees, and the Brian Farm.

The one-mile loop walk requires about 45 minutes. Wayside exhibits describe major historic features and events. In addition, a self-guiding brochure with a map of the walking tour is available in the Cyclorama Center behind you.

For your safety, and the protection of the park's resources, please do not climb on cannon or monuments. Watch for traffic at tour road crossings.
