HIGH WATER MARK

Such is the name of this part of the Gettysburg battlefield. The area on the near side of the stone wall was the scene of hand-to-hand fighting as Pickett's Charge ran out of steam on Cemetery Ridge. The failure of Gen. Lee's attempt to break the center of the Union line led to the Confederate retreat the following day. The South would never again mount an offensive in the North.
