Image is of the monument the New York State monument which stands just inside of the National Cemetery entrance along the Baltimore Pike across from East Cemetery Hill.

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

Reverse has a light barely readable stamp of “LEWIS YOST PHOTOGRAPHER.” Yost was from Glen Rock, Pennsylvania which is located approx. 30 miles east of Gettysburg.

The Stone Sentinels website says of the monument;

“The monument is made of Hallowell granite and it stands over 94 feet high. At the top is a sixteen foot high statue depicting the State of New York holding a wreath to place over a grave. Although difficult to see from the ground, the statue is weeping for the roughly 6,700 members of New York units who became casualties during the three days of Gettysburg.

At the base of the spire is a bronze relief of an eagle in front of a set of banners and weapons hung with the state motto, Excelsior. It is just above the Coat of Arms of the State of New York set in laurel leaves of victory.

Circling the monument at the base of the spire are bronze reliefs of four stylized scenes involving New York officers, the Death of Reynolds, the Wounding of Hancock (who the monument admits is from Pennsylvania), the Wounding of Sickles, and Slocum’s Council of War. The statue and bronze reliefs were created by sculptor Casper Buberl.

Around the base are brass tablets identifying the New York officers killed or mortally wounded at Gettysburg. Above the tablet on the front are the symbols of the seven Union army corps and four branches of service that fought at Gettysburg; the only monument on the battlefield to display them all.

The monument was dedicated on July 2, 1893.” [ad][ph:L]
