Very nice image by William Tipton of the 1st Massachusetts Infantry monument that stands along the Emmitsburg Road just south of Gettysburg at the site of the Rogers house.

The monument consists of a base and a large diamond depicting a Union soldier knocking down a fence rail with his foot and holding his musket at the “ready” position.

Image meas. approx. 11.00 x 13.50 inches and is printed on heavy stock with a brown border running around the edge. Image is clear with good contrast. Lower right front of border is marked “915E” in gold. Reverse has Tipton’s imprint.

Edge is chipped at top center and bottom center. This is very minor and overall the item has a nice appearance.

The 1st Massachusetts Infantry was organized in Boston and mustered in on May 23, 1861. The regiment saw action from Blackburn’s Ford in 1861 to Spotsylvania in 1864 serving in 31 battles and skirmishes losing 9 officers killed, died of wounds and died of disease and 212 men. These numbers do not include the hundreds of surviving wounded that the regiment suffered.  [AD]
