WBTS Trivia: Devil's Den, located on the southern end of the Gettysburg battlefield, is a foreboding boulder strewn hill that is estimated to have been formed millions of years ago from volcanic rock. Devil's Den played an important part in the second day's battle, on July 2, 1863. It was from this spot, hidden between these large rock formations, that Rebel sharpshooters picked off Union soldiers opposite them on Little Round Top. It is definitely one of the highlights to see when touring the Gettysburg National Military Park.
