1863 Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Monument Replicas


Lieutenant Colonel William L. Curry, a Philadelphia paperhanger, commanded the 106th Pennsylvania Infantry at the Battle of Gettysburg.  It brought 335 men to the field, losing 9 killed, 54 wounded, and 1 missing.


During the day on July 2, 1863, several companies of the regiment were involved in heavy skirmishing along Emmitsburg Road and around the Bliss farm.  As Longstreet’s attack made its way north in the late afternoon the regiment countercharged Wright’s Georgia Brigade.


In the evening of July 2 most of the 106th Pennsylvania was sent to East Cemetery Hill to help defend the Union batteries there.  It arrived too late to take part in throwing back the Confederate attack, but it was not returned because the commanders there had no confidence in their own infantry.  While most of the regiment was sent to Cemetery Hill two companies and a small detail were left behind near the Copse of Trees with the rest of the brigade and helped repel Pickett’s Charge on July 3.


This marker indicates the 106th Pennsylvania’s position on July 3.  “You can be withdrawn when that regiment runs away,” General Howard told his artillery chief on July 1, indicating the 106th.  The regiment also has monuments on the Emmitsburg Road and near the Cops of Trees on Hancock Avenue.


The monument is located on East Cemetery Hill.
