Googlemaps show that a straight line from Marianna to Gettysburg is 770 miles. Surprisingly, Gettysburg is slightly further than even Chambersburg, making Seminary Ridge the greatest distance Marianna men in the 2nd and 8th Florida regiments traveled from home during the War. After spending the first day marching east along the Chambersburg Pike, the Florida brigade was not involved in that day's action. They were deployed to an area along Seminary Ridge around the Spangler farm.
Looking north along Seminary Ridge from the Spangler farmhouse where the Florida brigade was initially positioned.
The view east toward Cemetery Ridge from the fields just north of the Spangler Farmhouse. The Florida Brigade more or less traveled this route toward objectives on the right portion of this image (toward the Pennsylvania monument's whose white dome if just visible on the right).
Looking south west from Cemetery Ridge toward the Codori Thicket in the direction of the route taken by the 14th and 16th VT in driving into the Floridians' left.
Looking back toward the launching point near at Seminary Ridge around the Spangler Farm.
I was intending to walk the route of both days' advances, but rapidly approaching thunder clouds dissuaded me from risking lighting and becoming the last casualty of Pickett's charge. Hopefully I'll have better weather (and better maps) for the next visit to complete this exploration.
