Big Round Top
97 Taneytown Rd., Gettysburg, PA 17325-2804 GET DIRECTIONS
Big Round Top was one of the battle sites of July 2, 1863. The opening charge was directed against Union troops occupying Devil's Den. General Law's men were forced to move further to the right toward Big Round Top to escape the concentrated artillery fire coming from the Wheatfield and Peach Orchard. Some of Law's men marched over Big Round Top to attack the open Union flank at Little Round Top.
