November 28, 2014

Here we have a variety of colors and themes . . . gnarled old brown trunks, orange autumn leaves, ancient gray rocks, and green plant growth, the last vestiges of summer. This photo was taken from the very edge of Triangular Field and shows Rose Woods and the swell of Houck’s Ridge. At far center right is the base of the 124TH New York Infantry monument, topped by Col. Ellis. The marker seen at the edge of the woods alongside Sickles Avenue commemorates the 2ND Brigade of the 1ST Division of the 3RD Corps.


Co. K, 16TH Michigan Infantry

Born 1840 --- Died July 02, 1863

Lt. Jewett, a law student in civilian life, was also Aide-de-Camp and had previously served with the Michigan cavalry. He is buried at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
