What I sent was a detail from the 1864 Bachelder Map.  According to
Hartwig, the photograph would have been taken from the position of the
flank of the 121st Pennsylvania, pointing North East (from left to right
on the map). Shead's Woods is at the far right, beyond the railroad cut.
Note how the woods currently are considerably closer to the cut than
they were according to Bachelder in 1864 (similar to the photograph,
IMHO).
