Overlook at the Summit

The highest point of Little Round Top is an excellent overlook, seen here on a winter day when the lack of vegetation shows even more of the terrain. A number of wayside makers interpret the view for the thousands of visitors who visit this spot every year. The difference in elevation from Warren’s statue is evident – it can be seen behind and below the last marker on the right. The monument is to the 91st Pennsylvania Volunteers, and is topped by the Maltese Cross symbol of the Fifth Corps which held Little Round Top. The artillery pieces are 10-pounder Parrott rifles that the men of Hazlett’s Battery manhandled to the top of the hill.
