Peach Orchard

From his headquarters at Trostle Farm, the high ground along the Emmitsburg Road was a major concern to Union 3rd Corps Commander Dan Sickles.  At about 1  PM he moved the center of his line to the Peach Orchard.  The right ran along Emmitsburg Road while the left ran back to Stony Hill than to Devils Den.  The first wave of the attack came from Hood’s Division from Warfield Ridge.  The second wave of McLaws Division attacking from Pitzer Woods finally overwhelmed Sickles line.
