Herr's Tavern

Image 1: Herr's Tavern. Located near the area of the first shots of the battle, Herr's Tavern sits on Herr's Ridge. Looking more or less like it did during the battle, the tavern is now a (somewhat expensive) restaurant.

It was in the vicinity of this tavern, at the north west corner of the battlefield, that Buford's Union Cavalry defended the ridge against the advance elements of Heth's Division of Hill's Confederate Corps.

These photographs were taken with a Nikon F-601 autofocus SLR, using a Nikkor 24mm - 50mm f2.8 wide angle zoom lens or with a Sigma 150mm - 300mm telephoto zoom lens. The image was captured on Kodak Royal Gold film.
