I was going to Mention that the Confederate was at Devils Dean not Little Round top.
There is an interesting story about that photo, the guy that took it, moved the body and Rifled Musket to that stone wall between the rocks, as several other photos he took show the same body and rifle in other photos
Incredible images Carlo3 !!
Thank you for taking the time to share with us

Forgot to mention, these are great photos!! I love the one of the Canadian Paras. I would like to get a copy of one of them to frame!!!!
Yeah, I have read that the shot was posed - Placement of body and weapon looked too perfect, and it was. Probably not all that unusual of a practice, that particular placement of rocks is impressive, among a huge jumble of boulders. Have been to Gettysburg quite a few times and the fact that the lay of the land is largely intact and there are many identifiable spots from contemporary photos such as this makes it quite an interesting visit if you get prepped before you go.
Very cool thread!......
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
