This is my latest painting I'm calling "The Slyder Farm." The John Slyder Farm is down from Devil's Den on the west side of Little Round Top in Gettysburg National Park. John Slyder purchased it in 1849 when he moved up from Maryland. During the Battle of Gettysburg, on July 2nd, 1863, General Hood's Confederate division moved across the farm on their way to Devil's Den and Little Round Top. There they were driven back down the hill by Colonel Joshua Chamberlain's famous bayonet charge. The Farm became a field hospital for Confederate Troops. Two months later John Slyder sold the farm and moved to Ohio.
