The latest release is the Maj. Joshua G. Palmer monument.
On July 3, 1863, at the Battle of Gettysburg, according to multiple sources, Major Palmer was on Culp’s Hill near the left flank of the 66th Ohio when a Confederate bullet entered his left lung. Four privates from his old company took him back up the slope to the earthworks. Private John Houtz later wrote: “I saw he was breathing through the hole the ball had made. I took a fine silk handkerchief I happened to have and wet it from my canteen and pressed it upon the wound. Palmer uttered, ‘Oh, that did me so much good,’ then said encouragingly, “Stay with them, boys! I will soon be back with you.” Palmer died of his wounds on July 10, 1863, at the 12th Corps Hospital.
