In 1863, there was something of a big deal of a huge battle between the Union and Confederate troops during the Civil War. The three-day battle stood as a huge victory for the Union Army, and turned away the Confederate's attempts to invade Pennsylvania. It stands out as the bloodiest single battle of the war, resulting in over 51,000 soldiers killed, wounded, captured or missing. (It was also here Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address during the dedication of the cemetery, on November 19, 1863.)

Yes, it does look dark. Sunset was pretty much a memory at this point. A monument to the 3rd NY Independent Battery Artillery Brigade alongside the cemetery. At one time Gettysburg was the largest military cemetery, but Arlington took the lead long ago.
