  Memorial at the Angle
by VeronicaG

This memorial honors those who died fighting hand to hand combat at the Angle. It occured on the third and last day of battle--Picketts famous charge ended here. At the conclusion of the charge, which lasted 50 minutes, there were 10,000 casualties.

There is such a solemn feel throughout the entire Gettysburg Battlefield area. The sacrifices made here call for a respectful accounting. The monuments scattered over many acres give visitors an understanding of the magnitude of the battle.

Park hours are 6 am-10 pm., Apr 1-Oct.31; 6 am-7 pm, Nov. 1-Mar.31.
