Hey guys. I would like to present the first WIP screens of my new map project: McPhersons's Ridge
At McPherson's Ridge, Buford's federal cavalry engaged with Heth division at July 1st, 1861. It was a very small area, but the fighting was very hard and brutal.
Many famous charges and actions took place at McPherson's Ridge, like fighting at the Railroad cut, fighting in Herbst woods and the death of General Reynolds.
Im trying to get out a very historical map, with real topographic heights and locations. Hope you will enjoy the first screens Buford's position at McPherson' Barn, looking down Chambersburg PikePosition of Lysander Cutler's New York cavalry regiments.
