Northeast would be near Culp’s Hill. Most people don’t see that part of the battlefield and they ought to.

Northwest. First day of the battle.
People forget that Lee's army approached from the north and the west. The Southern invasion of Pennsylvania lasted about a month and ended the last day of Gettysburg.
June 1863 was a very interesting chapter in the war's history as Lee's army met very little resistance for two reasons:
- Everyone knew his ultimate target was Washington, D.C. and the Union Army marshaled everything to protect it rather than resist Lee's advance.
- Lee's army, for the most part, behaved like gentlemen. There was no looting or burning of Pennsylvania farms and towns. They paid or traded for everything they took. Thus, there was little popular resistance. Quite a contrast to Sherman's army marching through Georgia.
