Culp’s Hill is a landform 0.75 mi (1.21 km) south of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which played a prominent role in the Battle of Gettysburg. It consists of two rounded peaks, separated by a narrow saddle. Its heavily wooded higher peak is 630 ft (190 m) above sea level. The lower peak is about 100 feet (30 m) shorter than its companion. The eastern slope descends to Rock Creek, about 160 feet (50 m) lower in elevation, and the western slope is to a saddle with Stevens Knoll (formerly McKnight’s Hill) with a summit 100 ft (30 m) lower than the main Culp’s Hill summit. The hill was owned in 1863 by farmer Henry Culp and was publicized as “Culp’s Hill” by October 31, 1865.
