The 76th New York was commanded at the Battle of Gettysburg by Major Andrew J. Glover. He was killed in the first few minutes of fighting on July 1st and Captain John E. Cook took command. The 76th was the lead Union infantry regiment at the Battle of Gettysburg, arriving in midmorning and advancing across the fields from Emmitsburg Road and past the Seminary to the location of the monument. It was here that it met Davis’ Confederate Brigade advancing from the west and opened fire.
