Item Code: 224-530

This resin piece is a copy of “Sallie” the regiment’s mascot from the front of the monument erected by the veterans of the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry at Gettysburg. The actual monument is on Doubleday Avenue located northwest of the town. The monument was dedicated on September 3, 1889.

Sallie was given to the regiment as a puppy and took part in all their battles, taking position at the end of the firing line and barking furiously at the enemy. She was separated from the regiment at Gettysburg during the retreat through the town. After the battle the men returned to the scene of the first day’s fighting and found Sallie, weak but alive, maintaining a vigil over the dead and dying. Sallie was killed at Hatcher’s Run in February of 1865, and in spite of heavy Confederate fire several men stopped to bury her. When the monument was designed the regiment’s survivors unanimously decided to include a tribute to their smallest comrade.

This replica of Sallie is 6 ¾” long by 4” tall. It is complete with Corps badges and text around the base. Piece is signed on the bottom by the artist.

These were produced by Gary Casteel who is well known for his talent in producing copies of monuments on the field and his pieces are much sought after.  [jet] [ph:m]
