Tour the Gettysburg battlefield > NorthCentralSouthE. Cavalry Field

Seminary Ridge Avenue is named for the Lutheran Theological Seminary whose buildings still dominate the high ground on the west side of Gettysburg. The Avenue is on the west side of Gettysburg, and links Chambersburg Pike (US 30) with the intersection of Fairfield Road, West Middle Street and West Confederate Avenue on the south. It is part of the National Park Auto Tour.

Here on July 1st the Union First Army Corps fell back to its final line of defence. On July 2nd and 3rd it was the nerve center of the Confederate Army, hosting Lee’s Headquarters. On July 4th the Confederate 2nd Corps formed here to cover the withdrawal of Lee’s army.
