Powers Hill: Located in the area of the Baltimore Pike, Granite Schoolhouse Lane, and Blacksmith Shop Road, Powers Hill was a signal station and bristled with Union artillery that delivered a devastating fire into Confederate forces (and some Union defenders) attacking lower Culp's Hill and Spangler's Spring on July 3, 1863. Confederates facing this intense artillery barrage named this region of the battlefield "Artillery Hell." Right Wing Commander and Twelfth Corps Commander, Major-General Henry W. Slocum had his headquarters here. During the bombardment preceding Pickett’s Charge on the afternoon of July 3rd, Army of the Potomac commander, Major-General George Gordon Meade temporarily moved his headquarters here.
Unit monuments include the 77th New York Infantry Regiment, Battery A, Maryland Light Artillery, Battery E, Knap’s Pennsylvania Light Artillery, and Battery M, First New York Artillery. The last picture is the marker for the 4th New Jersey Infantry Regiment. This unit was used as a train guard in this rear area of the Union lines. During the afternoon of July 3, 1863, during the bombardment preceding, and Pickett’s Charge, union fugitives fled to the rear. The 4th New Jersey deployed in this area with fixed bayonets to stop their flight. Major Charles Ewing, commanding the 4th New Jersey, claimed he stopped, reorganized, and turned over 400 to 500 men to Provost-Marshal General Marsena Patrick.
