"It was Artillery Hell..."
This is how Confederate Gen. George Steuart later described the intense Union artillery fire pounding down on his positions at Culp's Hill.
On the morning of July 3, 1863 Union artillery batteries, strategically placed on Power's Hill were able to direct their devastating fire on the exposed Confederate infantry who were looking to make one last great push to capture the Union right at Culp's Hill. The artillery fire emanating from Power's Hill helped turn the tide on the Union right and preserve this critical position.
Now we have the opportunity to save 5 acres of the very ground where these powerful Union batteries were located. Join us in working to save this hallowed ground on Power's Hill.
