Analyzing the Kentucky Derby Contenders Date:
Root and Jeffrey D. Stocker have long disappeared, some of the uniquely shaped bases can still be found elsewhere on the battlefield. One of these most likely to the 33rd Massachusetts Infantry Regiment is located on the east side of East Cemetery Hill along the north side of the second stone wall out of the five parallel stone walls, and counting them from south to north about halfway down to Wainwright Avenue: So, if you are in the vicinity of a monument to a Massachusetts infantry regiment, take a look around and see if you can find one of those old bases: The original base is roughly 4 feet by 8 feet and located about 20 yards off of the west side of South Confederate Avenue about halfway up the hill as you climb northward along the western base of Big Round Top and the large parking area on the left.
Look for the twin trees on your left and only a few feet off the road see the left photo below: The other one is the original base for the monument to the 16th Vermont Infantry Regiment, commanded by Colonel Wheelock G.
The monument was originally located approximately 1, yards west of its current position as the bronze plaque that was attached to the new base after the monument was moved now indicateswhich is on the east side of Hancock Avenue along Cemetery Ridge just north of Pleasonton Avenue. What is really interesting to me is that apparently the original base was not left where it was as was in the case of the other bases mentioned abovebut was moved approximately 1, yards i.
Baily was another monument that had been moved and the remnants its original base can still be found if you look carefully. The remnants of the original base are located in a tiny clump of brush roughly halfway between the monument to the 61st New York Infantry Regiment and the monument to Battery D of the 1st New York Light Artillery: Here is a photo showing the original position of the monument to the 2nd Delaware Infantry Regiment the monument to General Samuel Zook along the south side of the Wheatfield Road is visible in the background: Photo courtesy of the GNMP and Mike Waricher Here is a current photo taken in the approximate area as the photo above as well as photo of the monument on Brooke Avenue: The monument, located roughly 50 yards north of the Wheatfield Road approximately 65 yards west of its intersection with Sedgwick Avenue north of Little Round Top, was originally located atop a rock on the northern slope of Little Round Top and roughly yards south of its current position.
Another interesting monument which was also moved is the monument to the 16th Michigan Infantry Regiment commanded by Colonel Norval E.
Commanded by Colonel George H.
That monument, located roughly 50 yards further west around the bend in the loop on Sickles Avenue, is to the 28th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, another regiment in that brigade: Yet another regiment in the Irish Brigade, the th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment composed primarily of Irish immigrants from Philadelphia, has its monument just 20 yards away on the other side of the road and does not have that historic phrase.
These are the monuments in the order from south to north as you go up the lane to the th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment, the 93rd Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment, the 62nd New York Infantry Regiment, the nd Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment, and the 98th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment located roughly 60 yards behind the house.
Nevin, you will see remnants of the original base that were removed when the original monument was replaced by a newer monument that was placed on top of the lower section of the original base: The original monument is roughly yards to the east and only 20 yards off to the west side of Sedgwick Avenue almost directly across from the equestrian monument to General John Sedgwick about yards north of the intersection of Sedgwick Avenue and Sykes Avenue: Although that information is stated on the monument, if you look nearby, you will see something even more interesting flank markers for the regiment!!!
It is my understanding that the Gettysburg Battlefield Memorial Association, which was formed on April 30,had specific rules it adopted in for the placement of monuments, including: The monument must be on the line of battle held by the brigade unless the regiment was detached, and if possible the right and left flanks of the regiment or battery must be marked with stones not less than two feet in height.
So, why were flank markers either required or approved even though the regiment was indeed on detached duty during the battle??? Union regiments and batteries which do not have monuments There were several Union Army units, all part of the VI Corps, which were indeed present at the Battle of Gettysburg but do not have any monument or marker: Why the Rhode Island legislation of providing for monuments at Gettysburg did not include these two artillery batteries is unknown.
Battle damaged structures I would venture a guess that perhaps the most well known structure in Gettysburg that still shows battle damage is the Farnsworth House Inn located at Baltimore Street during the battle, it was the home of the Harvey Sweney family: You can see many other structures with similar damage, such as the Jacob Stock house at South Washington Street: What is really interesting is that there are nine structures with artillery shells embedded in their walls written accounts for some of the structures state that the shell is an unexploded one that was never removed, while accounts for others say the shell entered the structure but did not explode and then was later placed in the wall to commemorate the fact that the structure sustained battle damage: Town names, as is often the case, have also changed.
The present-day village of Barlow renamed for General Francis C. West Point graduates at the Battle of Gettysburg One often reads about Union generals who were West Point graduates that fought against fellow classmates in the Confederate Army, but I had never really thought much about it until I received an email asking me if I knew or could find out exactly how many West Point graduates fought at Gettysburg.
John informed me that according to a data sheet in the GNMP library files, there were Union officers and 41 Confederate officers at Gettysburg who were West Point graduates.
John also mailed me a copy of that data sheet, which was the basis for the charts I compiled below:Nov 19, · I like crashing picnics, swarming on watermelon at the beach, drinking Mint Juleps at The Derby and looking for winners at the track.
