Tour the Gettysburg battlefield > NorthCentralSouthE. Cavalry Field

Hancock Avenue continues one-way north from Pleasonton Avenue to the Copse of Trees is the High Water Mark, Monuments are thick here, where Pickett’s Charge was halted in brutal hand-to-hand fighting.

This can be one of the most crowded areas of the park, particularly in the afternoons when tour busses cluster thickly and lines of cars listening to in-car tours try to find a place to stop out of the traffic flow.
