On a recent trip to Gettysburg I took this random sweeping photo of the area of Culp’s Hill known as the “saddle” and was intrigued by the thought of identifying all of the monuments in the photo. (Click for larger view). The divisional marker at far left represents the Second Division of the Twelfth Corps, commanded by Brig. Gen. John W. Geary. The monument with the statue in center left is the 23rd Pennsylvania Infantry (Birney’s Zouaves). The 67th New York Infantry is barely visible to the right (between two trees).
The “pink” monument in center belongs to the 7th Ohio Infantry. The tall monument just past that is the 137th New York Infantry. The monument with “ridged” sides is that of the 29th Ohio Infantry. Directly to the right is the 122nd New York Infantry. The last monument visible to the right belongs to the 149th New York Infantry. The boulder plaque in the foreground represents the 84th New York Infantry.
