On the afternoon of July 2nd Brigadier General Samuel Kosciusko
Zook led his brigade, part of Brigadier General John Caldwell’s
Division, toward the Wheatfield to support the crumbling line of Major
General Dan Sickles. As he rode his horse up a small rise he became a
prominent target above the battle smoke. He was struck in the abdomen
by a Confederate minie ball that ricocheted off a boulder and fell
from his horse. One of his aides, Lieutenant Josiah Favill, arrived
and Zook said, “It’s all up with me, Favill.” (Pfantz, Gettysburg,
The Second Day, p. 277) Zook’s Brigade was repulsed later in the
day as was the whole Division. Zook died the next day around 5 pm,
knowing that Longstreet’s Assault had been repulsed and the Union, for
which he was dying, was still a reality.
