Little Round Top, Gettysburg
Photographic History Collection / NMAH
Little Round Top, pictured here, is the smaller of two hills south of Gettysburg. It was here on the second day of the battle that the Confederates gained some leverage over the Union. As fighting raged on, bodies began to pile up in the grassy area.
