1863 Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Monument Replicas

 

Under Colonel James Wood Jr., the 136th New York reached Cemetery Hill with the rest of its brigade on July 1 as the 1st and 11th Corps were falling back.  For three days, July 1, 2, and 3, 1863, the men of the unit occupied the spot, dueling with Confederate skirmishers in the fields to the west, and not infrequently being harassed by sharpshooters lodged in buildings on the southern end of town.  The “skirmishing and sharpshooting was so active and continuous that the regiment, without participating in any other fighting, lost 106 men killed and wounded.”

 

On arriving near Gettysburg, the brigade was put into position on Cemetery Hill, near to and south of the village…the position assigned to this regiment was on the left of the brigade, on the road leading from Gettysburg to Taneytown, about 30 yards in front of artillery, placed in position in our rear, on the crest of Cemetery Hill…In the position assigned us, the regiment was deployed in a line of battle behind a stonewall or fence, that fenced out the road from the adjoining field.” – Col. James Wood, 136th New York.

 

The monument is located on Taneytown Road across from the National Cemetery and was dedicated in 1888.
