You're right that there are still plenty of quiet areas at GB despite the throngs of people. Barlow's knoll was one of my destinations this past Saturday. Spent quiet a bit of time roaming around there and rereading descriptions of Barlow's attempt at defence of the knoll against Gordon/Doles. As a coincidence, I had an ancestor in the 4th Georgia. Except for an occasional passing car I had the area to myself for a couple of hours. Other areas where one can sit and contemplate are Culps Hill, Cemetary Hill (both the base and top), Peach Orchard (b/o the vistas one has there). The "hair raising" site for me is the base of Cemetary hill where Hay's and Avery's brigades charged that 2nd day/night. Despite the crowds, I would never give up an opportunity to go.
