Description

On the Gettysburg battlefield, a cannon looks on from the Union position atop Cemetery Ridge, at a place called "The Angle". This area of the battlefield saw some of the most fierce fighting on the last day of the battle, during Pickett's Charge. Union troops prevailed in the end, making this scene the "high water mark" of the rebellion -- the sunset of the Confederacy.
