This photo taken at the monument of the 107th Ohio at Gettysburg shows about 42 of the regiment’s survivors seated in front of the monument and standing to each side and is mounted in its original gilt lined frame with wood backing in place. The monument was dedicated 14 September 1887 and Tipton of Gettysburg list two images taken that day: one of the general group attending the ceremony and a second, this one, showing only the regiment’s survivors. A few figures in the background are likely from that larger group in attendance.

The regiment served from September 1862 to July 1865. At Gettysburg it was in the 1st Division of the 11th Corps, taking into action 400 officers and men, seeing heavy fighting on July 1 and again on the evening of July 2 when they helped repulse the Louisiana brigade on Cemetery Hill, capturing the colors of the 8th Louisiana in hand-to-hand fighting over Wiedrich’s Battery, as well as being under fire as skirmishers on July 3, losing 23 killed, 111 wounded, and 77 missing. In August 1863 they joined the 10th Corps and saw service in the Department of the South, seeing action in Florida and South Carolina. Their regimental monument records their principal engagements as: Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Hagerstown, Md.., Fort Wagner; John’s Island; Camp Finnegan (Fla.;) Devereaux’s Neck; Combahee Terry; Dingle’s Mills; Statesburo; and, Swift Creek, S.C. Civil War Data lists they losses during service in killed and mortally wounded as 3 officers and 54 enlisted men.

The photo is in good condition- a little light or faded in the upper portions showing sky and the top of the monument, along with a thin stain, but with good clarity to the figures and faces of the survivors. There is a bit of damage at lower left, but this is on a portion of the images showing a dirt road some ways in front of the monument and does not affect any of the figures or the monument. The frame shows significant chipping to the outer front edge of the wood veneer, but this hardly affects the historical significance of the image. We would, however, suggest considering the insertion of an acid-free sheet at the back between the image mount and original wood back. We also recommend Baumgartner’s book, “Buckeye Blood: Ohio at Gettysburg.” [SR] [ph:L]
