Harpers Ferry

This gun line marks the location of A.P. Hill’s division on the morning of Sept. 15, 1862, during the final hours of the Battle of Harpers Ferry. The previous night Hill’s men had marched along the Federals’ left flank, dragged some 20 guns up a sheer-faced cliff, and positioned them to enfilade the UnionistsĀ in the morning.
