Spangler’s Spring is a natural spring southeast of Gettysburg on the southern foot of Culp’s Hill. At times during the battle it was held by each side, and for a time was between the lines. Both sides filled their canteens from the spring on the night of July 2nd.
The Spangler’s Spring area is on the National Park Auto Tour. Because of the one way avenues traffic from the south and from East Confederate Avenue must leave to the north over Culp’s Hill. Drivers can choose between Slocum Avenue and Geary Avenue, which rejoin a short distance to the north.
