Driving The Yankees On The 1st Day / Gettysburg

Reynolds Corps collapsed on Seminary Ridge and was driven by the Confederates through the outskirts of Gettysburg. This is a good picture of this phase of the battle. You can see the range of hills off in the distance that would eventually turn the tide of battle in favor of the Union. Culps and Cemetery Hill, Cemetery Ridge, Little Round Top and Big Round Top can be seen. The Union Army was driven through town and the battle turned into house to house fighting.
