East Cemetery Hill is across the street from the Baltimore Pike entrance to the Soldiers' National Cemetery. There are many monuments commemorating the battle there at the end of the day on 2 Jul 1863. There are some nice views at the top of the hill and one can see why it was a strategic position. One of the videos is a panorama from East Cemetery Hill. It too is within walking distance of the Dobbin House. The Hall of Presidents, Soldiers' Museum and Ginnie Wade's House are 1-2 blocks up Baltimore Street.

Directions: On Baltimore Street (Hwy-97) about 4 blocks southeast of the intersection with Steinwehr Avenue (US-15)
