Whirlpool of Fighting and Death Jul 11, 2012
On July 2, 1863, a wheat field in Gettysburg became the center of fighting and death. Known as the bloody field, the site where the union soldiers and confederate soldiers came in contact became the bloody field. The 20 acre wheat field was the battlefield on the second day of the fighting, it was formerly the rose farm, bordering the Peach farm to the north.

Like Little Round Top, Devil's Den and Peach Orchard, this golden wheat field over the course of one long bloody afternoon would become firmly entrenched in the memory of Americans as the place where Americans killed fellow Americans.

At the end of the day, it is said the golden wheat field became a field soaked in blood.
