Then and Now

While trying to finish the third part of the article on the West Angle thought I would put something out there for those that like to look at maps.

Below are three maps, pretty self-explanatory.

First is the map prepared for Gen. Meade in 1864 of the battlefield. The second  is the National Park Service’s surviving earthworks map of 2004.   The third is the  Jed Hotchkiss map of 1864. How many differences can you see?
