Six Spots on the Gettysburg Battlefield

Over on his Crossroads blog, Brooks D. Simpson has asked a very intriguing question. If you had an opportunity to lead a 3-hour tour of the Battle of Gettysburg, and were only allowed to stop at six spots. Which spots would you pick. You can view his post, and the responses (including my own), here.

It reminds me of another question my college friends and I used to consider. If you could somehow witness the Battle of Gettysburg without running the risk of being killed or wounded, but you were only allowed to stay in one spot, what vantage point would you choose?

Don't think too deeply about this one - it's obviously a silly hypothetical, and perhaps the better question is would you really want to witness such a horrific event?
