It furnished shelter for Confederate sharpshooters who were picking off the gunners at the batteries on Little Round Top. The barricade of one is yet pointed out in the rear. He had been killed by the concussion of a shell which exploded at the crevice of the rock against which his head was leaning and when found, there was not a mark on his body.", reads the description printed on the back.
