The south end of the Gettysburg battlefield was the scene of some of the hardest fighting of the war on the second day of the battle. Longstreet’s attack swept across the Federal flank, turning the Peach Orchard, the Wheatfield, Devils Den and Little Round Top into legendary places in U.S. military history. The assault was stopped – barely – and for the last day of the battle the two sides contested the ground.
