This resin piece is a copy of the monument erected by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the 90th Pennsylvania Infantry for their valor at Gettysburg. The monument was dedicated in 1888.

One of three monuments on the field at Gettysburg that are dedicated to this regiment, it is located on Doubleday Avenue on Oak Ridge.  The Granite Tree monument is filled with interesting details. The beautifully realistic bark of the tree trunk is stripped in areas and splintered on the side from a grazing shot. The trunk itself is shattered at the top, with the cannonball that caused it still embedded in the tree’s heart. But after the ravages of war life goes on. Inches away a mother bird feeds two babies in her nest. Bronze vines grow around the trunk. And the tree still provides other useful services, holding a soldier’s rifle, bayonet, knapsack and cartridge case. The knapsack is lettered for the 90th Pennsylvania. Above the bronze shield telling the regiment’s story is a circle formed from the granite of the trunk, the symbol of the Union First Army Corps. The brass tablet seal of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is on the rear of the trunk.

This replica monument stands 13” tall, 2 1/8” in diameter at the top, and  3” across the base. It is complete with all the text and imagery that is found on the original monument.

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.  [ld][ph:L]
