Some excerpts from Carman manuscript:


Approach to Sunken Road (Photo #1)
The above photo was taken at base of slope.
Perhaps near left flank of 69th New York? 

Approach to Sunken Road (Photo #2)
In the above photo we can now see (and be seen) by Rebels in the road
Note the fencing can be seen on right. 

At the Sunken Road (Photo #3)
In the above photo we are now point-blank in front of the Rebels, who are in the road.

Rebels's view from Sunken Road (Photo #4)
In 1862 there was no corn or high vegetation here to block line-of-sight.
