Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2018

The war went as far as this area, blood ran high, it was a high up view of where the sharpshooters shoot down to help win the war.

This a simple granite sculture that shows the shows the farthest part that the South managed to achieve during the third days attacks otherwise known as Pickett's charge. Supposedly also where BG Armistead fell.

Anyone visiting Gettysburg must spend at least a few minutes at the High Water Mark and The Angle. This is where Pickett's Charge happened, you can read about it elsewhere.(I know some now refer to it as the Trimble-Pickett-Pettigrew Attack, but that doesn't roll off the tongue, does it?) I visit historical places a lot, this is where I first thought, that I am in awe when I stand at a place where transformative history has taken place. Stand at The Angle, look out over the field and imagine that somewhere between 12,000-15,000 men are marching towards you, and know that the men on both sides are thinking, this might be my final few minutes alive. I get chills whenever I stand there.

This is the epicenter of where Picketts Charge ended. It's referred to as The High Water Mark of the Confederacy. Some say this is the spot that represents the South's best chance for success in becoming a separate nation. When the charge failed at this spot, so did the South's chances. Never again would the Confederacy have an opportunity like this.
