1863 Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Monument Replicas

 

The First Corps went through three commanders in the three days of the Battle of Gettysburg. After General John Reynolds was mortally wounded early in the fighting on July 1st, the senior division commander, General Abner Doubleday, assumed command.

 

By all reports Doubleday did a good job in a difficult situation, but General Meade had a low opinion of his abilities and replaced with with General John Newton, a division commander from the Sixth Corps. Doubleday returned to his division command even though he was senior to Newton, but after Doubleday was lightly wounded on the last day of the battle he permanently left the army, with a lifelong grudge against Meade.

 

The monument was dedicated in 1913 and is located on the east side of Reynolds Avenue 125 yards south of Chambersburg Road.
