I don’t have many views of Ziegler’s Grove, and I particularly like this one. The Bryan barn and farmhouse take high precedence, but a few monuments really stick out, including the 111TH New York to the left of the house and the 11TH Mississippi marker on the other side of the wall. Ziegler’s Grove in the distance is still quite impressive. The artillery battery to the left of the barn represents Battery I, 1ST U.S. Artillery.


62ND Pennsylvania Infantry

Born 1835 --- Died July 02, 1863 at age 28

Maj. Lowry served his term of duty with a heavy loss in mind: His brother Robert, who had meant to join William in the service, wounded himself with a pistol accidentally before he could follow his brother to war. Maj. Lowry’s wife Mattie is thought to have died before him. He was buried at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
