The Battlefield

Union photographer Mathew Brady took these pictures of the Battlefield in March 1864. Apparently little had changed in the landscape since August 1862 except that most of the snake fences had been repaired (click on any image to enlarge it).

Looking west along the Warrenton Turnpike towards the Dunker Church. The town of Elington can be seen in the distance.

About a mile due south of the Dunker Church is the small town of Baldwin. On the horizon is Round Top.

Looking west across the famous Wheatfield towards Elington

The Stone Bridge that carries the Haymarket Road across Cartharpen Run (the entry point of the Union forces).
