Stereo card has a plain yellow mount in good condition.

Image is of the 1st Massachusetts Infantry monument which stands on the west side of the Emmitsburg Road south of Gettysburg.

Mount and paper are clean. Contrast and clarity are excellent.

Reverse is blank but does have a slight water stain in the lower left corner that barely shows up on the front.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts erected the monument on June 30th and it was dedicated on July 2nd, 1886.

The 9′ wide base of the granite monument supports the diamond symbol of the Third Corps, standing a total of 13′ 3″ high. The front of the diamond has a relief of a skirmisher climbing over a split rail fence. The 1st Massachusetts maintained a skirmish line on the army’s front on July 2nd. At the time of the battle the Rogers house stood just to the south of the monument; the yard where the monument is located was the location for the skirmish reserve.

The regiment was commanded during the Battle of Gettysburg by Lieutenant Colonel Clark B. Baldwin, a Boston merchant. It brought 384 men to the field, losing 16 killed, 83 wounded and 21 missing. (Information courtesy of the Stone Sentinels website.)

The 1st Massachusetts Infantry served with the 3rd and 2nd Corps of the Army of the Potomac and suffered heavy losses Williamsburg, Fair Oaks, 2nd Bull Run, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. During their service the regiment lost 9 officers and 212 men killed, died of wounds and disease plus many others wounded but survived.  [ad][ph:L]
