The odd grassy mound between the long ridges south of Gettysburg might arouse the curiosity of a visitor, but the site of the Bliss Farm lies hundreds of yards from modern tour routs. Certainly, more infamous sites on the battlefield vie for one's attention, and the struggle fro this once prosperous homestead is easily overlooked. Yet, on July 2 & 3, 1863, the incongruously named farm was a no-man's land that changed hands some ten times - possibly more than any other ground at Gettysburg. The reader is invited to tour this seldom explored area of the battlefield using maps, photos, and first-hand accounts to discover how that struggle impacted Lee's plan for victory, the lives of those who fought there, and the Bliss family.
