Titled “Pride of Erin,” this panoramic view by Dale Gallon shows the advance of the Irish Brigade in the Wheatfield at Gettysburg on July 2. The Union line of battle advances toward the viewer with regimental flags flying, both the U.S. stars and stripes and the green flags of the Irish regiments, along with the triangular red-trefoil second-corps flag of the brigade prominent at center. In the middle distance casualties taken in the advance litter the ground, some lying still, others being helped off the field. In the far distance smoke rises above the battle lines of other elements of Caldwell’s division, the units it had been summoned forward to aid, and Longstreet’s attacking troops.

In the foreground the artist shows Confederate troops exchanging fire with the advancing Union line, many of the defenders showing the Palmetto tree badge of South Carolina, indicating they are part of Kershaw’s brigade, who had pushed back Union defenders from Stony Hill and were preparing to swing north and cave in the flank of the Union salient at the Peach Orchard when the sudden arrival of Zook’s brigade and Kelly’s Irish Brigade first forced them into a defensive posture and then drove them back to the Rose Farm.

The print is ready to hang. The condition is excellent and the colors are vivid. The print has been professionally framed and matted in green and red, appropriate for the Irish Brigade and the First Division of the Second Corps, with insets at the lower left for a reproduction of the Irish harp insignia worn by some Irish troops and shown prominently on the flags of the advancing line, and at lower right for vignettes in color of the First Division, Second Corps red trefoil, an Irish Brigade flag, and a shamrock. The print bears a series number in pencil in the lower margin and printed identifications of the units portrayed as they appear in the battle scene.  [sr] [ph:m]
