The 12th New Hampshire was commanded at the Battle of Gettysburg by Captain John F. Langley, a machinest from Manchester. It held its ground north of the Klingel Farm when attacked by Wilcox's Alabama Brigade until it was finally ordered to retreat by General Birney. The noise of the battle was so loud that Captain Langley had to go to each company commander and shout into their ears the order to pull back. After Captain Langley was wounded in the withdrawal Lieutenant Fernal took over the survivors and returned them to the fight, freeing a number of captured Union troops. Only 50 men mustered for duty the next day under Captain Thomas E. Barker, when they provided support during Pickett's Charge.

The monument to the 12th New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry Regiment is south of Gettysburg on Emmitsburg Road next to the Klingle farmhouse; today it sits close behind a white picket fence. The rectangular granite monument is just over nine feet high. Its scrolled cap is topped with a carved soldier's knapsack and blanket roll, and a relief of the diamond symbol of the Third Corps is on both sides. The monument was erected by the State of New Hampshire on September 28, 1888.
