One of the things that has interested me as long as I have been walking across the Mule Shoe is where did the artillery batteries place the limbers and/or caissons. While the horses would have been too valuable to expose to hostile fire, ammunition would have been necessarily kept close by.
One of the exciting things about walking the battlefield is how just a slight difference in the way you approach something, or look at something can reveal a entirely different opinion. During a recent visit to the area of the East Angle a friend and I looked at this interesting arrangement of pits in the low ground behind the “cut-off” line behind the apex of the salient. Multiple pits, of roughly the same size, on the reverse slope where they would be sheltered from incoming fire. As you can see from the attached LIDAR photo, they were all angled toward the Landrum House site, which tells you where they felt the threat would be from.
My apologies for the “pile of leaves” photos. But look closely you can see what’s there.
