View north from the roof of the 44th New York

This is the view from the observation deck of the the 44th New York monument. It looks north to the high point of Little Round Top with the 91st Pennsylvania monument and the monument to Hazlett’s BatteryGeneral Warren’s statue can be seen in the distance just to the left of the 91st Pennsylvania. Close by on the left side of the photo is the back and side of the monument to Colonel Patrick O’Rorke’s 140th New York.

The summit of Little Round Top is often crowded with visitors, especially on summer days when a stream of tour busses unload in the parking lot (which is just off to the right of the photo). This shot was taken just after dawn on a summer day, a good time to have the hill to yourself.
