October 1, 2023 – Afternoon Program
“A Bloody Stony Hill” featuring LBG Phil Muskett
A small wooded, rocky ridge just south of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania will be the focus of this walk. This ridge is located between a famous wheatfield and peach orchard. This fighting is often overlooked by events to the east and west. Four Union and three Confederate brigades will spar and spill blood on this little ridge on the afternoon of July 2, 1863. This ridge will be forever remembered as the Stony Hill by the veterans, and The Loop by visitors to the battlefield today. We will walk the ground and hear the stories of the men who fought here that afternoon.
Meeting Place: We will begin at the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center, Parking Lot Three. (Please be at least 20 minutes early.) Upon entering Lot Three, turn left into the western or highest, group of parking spots. There we will form carpools to Sickles Avenue in The Wheatfield. Once we are done, we will return to Lot Three.
Registration will be open until the day of the event. Please register on our website as payment cannot be taken on the field.
