Little Round Top

  On the second day at Gettysburg Union General Gouverneur K. Warren realized the importance of Little Round Top that was empty of troops. General Dan Sickles disobeyed orders and moved his Third Corps out of line which left Little Round Top undefended. Warren ordered Colonel Strong Vincent to order his men into position just before the Confederate attack which would ultimately save that part of the Union line. This is a statue of Warren and his view of the Confederate lines from Little Round Top.
