Nicely done, John, and well thought out. So much of the evidence for this site has to do with the location of unburied Federal bodies as late as July 6 and what happened at this location at the time of the battle, the results evidenced here of the destruction of a sustained battle line. How much we can trust Gardner's description in his Sketch Book can be debated, but it is a key to looking at the first day's field in combination with other factors you and I have discussed. Thanks for posting your findings and photographic work.
