There's a long needed clearing project going on at CH from the Union perspective of the Confederate attack.

I've always wanted to visualize that sight on my trips there. Apparently I'll be able to the next time I go.

I've always thought that area got short shrift due to the modern landscape, not to mention the confusing numbers of monuments if not a versed in the battle.

There's info and photos on the Gettysburg NP website.

If anyone has been there lately let us know how it looks.

I walked much of Culps Hill last Saturday and there is extensive brush cutting going on. How far it goes and how it ends up waits to be seen.

Thanks Larry

The scope of the project is on the park website.

I'm not versed in putting it here from there.

Maybe someone will.
