High Water Mark
Gettysburg National Military Park
97 Taneytown Road
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania 17325
Voice: 717-334-1124

Late in the afternoon of the third day of battle, after a two hour cannonade, some 7000 Union soldiers posted around the Copse of Trees, The Angle, and the Brian Barn, repulsed the bulk of the 12000-man Pickett's Charge against the Federal center. This was the climactic moment of the battle.

Be sure to pick up a High Water Mark walking tour guide. This self-guide will tell the story as you walk the one mile trail. This walk will give you a feel as to how the Confederate soldiers felt as they came across the field and how the Union soldier felt positioned here to defend and hold their position. When the battle was over the losses from the three days at Gettysburg severely crippled the Southern cause and the Army of Northern Virginia.

KAT'S VIEW

There were several memorials here. The place was filled with them. This was the last part of the battle. It would have been very intense from all I have learned here in Gettysburg. Seeing the battlefield here on this trail, I can imagine how hard they were all fighting and how many died here.
