|The 153rd were also at the base of East Cemetery Hill facing Avery's North Carolinians on the evening of July 2. For those who haven't been to this often missed part of GB, Cemetery Ridge pales in comparison to the elevation of ECH. I've walked both numerous times and it's imcomprehensible to me how Hays/Avery's brigades could attack those heights. Those 2 brigades may have reached the heights and the artillery lunnets but Meade could easily, as he did, shift his troops from CR to support this area. Joe, where's Stevens Knoll?
