Bryan Farm

Bryan Farm Barn

Image 1: Bryan farm barn. This barn existed at the time of the battle. To the left of the barn is the monument to the 12th New Jersey Volunteer regiment. This area was defended by Maj. Gen. Winfield Hancock's II Corps (under John Gibbon, after Hancock took over III Corps). The 111th New York regiment was posted to the left and around the barn. The 108th New York regiment stood to the right of the barn.

Holes in the barn
