It does help Jim, and I'll tell you  why.

Yesterday, while waiting for the demon spawned Pats to go  down to
ignominious defeat, I idly wandered through wikipedia, searching for  the
GDG. 
strangly enough, there is no entry on the GDG, but there are plenty  of
references to it. One entry was "Seminary Ridge" which moved on to Mcmillan 
woods, which segued into Pitzers woods and the many camps located there
after  the war. I didn't know that this was the location of the CCC,
Military and POW camps, and I wondered what, if any, historic sites had
been  destroyed.
the answer, it would seem, is none. In the process though, I  found out that
a lot of camping has been done on the  battlefield.
Interesting stuff.
I think I got lost on Berdan Ave.  once.  I had to call Tom Henrique to come
and find  me.
Cheers!

Keith, 

I don't think any day 1 fighting  took place that far  south on the field. 



As the AOP  retreated from Seminary Ridge on July 1 some cavalry units from
Gamble's  brigade covered the southern area of the Seminary fighting (near
Red Patch)  until the advancing ANV drove them away.The cavalry retreated
south and east  to the area of the Peach Orchard, from which they sent out
pickets to scout  the area west of them. Later that day some units from the
III Corp (Humphrey's  division) marched to the field from the west up the
present day  Wheatfield/Millerstown Road. I would hazard a guess that other
than pickets  the woods were not occupied on July 1. 

On the 2nd, as the ANV  gathered strength along Seminary Ridge, they began
to fill in the area close  to the woods. Also on the 2nd, as Sickles became
concerned about what lay in  front of him, he sent several companies of the
US Sharpshooters, accompanied  by men from the 3rd Maine, across the fields
on a reconnaissance in order to  find the left flank of the ANV. These men
found and fired on troops of the  10th AL of Wilcox's brigade in a brief
engagement that confirmed Sickles's  fears that the Confederates were lining
up across from him on the ridge. The  AOP troops retreated from the area.
which was occupied by Wilcox's men and,  later in the day, by Barksdale's
Mississippians and Wofford's Georgians. All  of these ANV troops would
participate in the July 2 advance on the AOP line in  the 6-6:30 timeframe. 

Present day Berdan Avenue has some monuments to  the men from the AOP who
advanced to this area and discovered the expanding  ANV line. 

Hope this helps. 

Jim

Dennis, 

If you google LC  you'll see that this is one of the things almost always
cited. I think it's  wrong.
