As the threshing floor in front of you filled with wounded, W. R. Kiefer, 153rd Pennsylvania, noted, "The maimed were placed with heads next [to] the bays and middle partition (of the threshing floor) leaving a passageway at the feet of the patients." Two days later, on July 3, wounded soldiers laying here viewed the Confederate cannonade preceding Pickett's Charge. Pvt. Stephen Romig, 153rd Pennsylvania Infantry, recalled:   "There I had a fine view of the bursting shells coming in our direction . . . there were at one time six explosions of shells in one moment . . . the danger was becoming so great that every man was removed . . . the surgeon who had been in shortly before looking at my wound ran for his life."       Pvt. Stephen Romig
