1863 Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Monument Replicas


On July 2, 1863 at Gettysburg, Colonel Louis R. Francine's regiment was detached from its brigade to support Captain Clark's New Jersey artillery battery as it defended the Army of the Potomac's III Corps position near the famed Peach Orchard.


As the Confederates pressed their attack, Colonel Francine was severely wounded, and his regiment withdrew along with the remnants of the Union troops.  He died of the wounds two weeks later on July 17, 1863 in Philadelphia. He was 26 years old.


He received a posthumous brevet promotion to Brigadier General, US Volunteers, back dated to July 2, 1863, the date of his wounding, for "gallant and meritorious services at the battle of Gettysburg…."


The monument is located at the intersection of Sickles Avenue and Wheatfield Road in Excelsior Field and was dedicated on June 30, 1888.
