12th & 44th New York Infantry Monument, Gettysburg

4.8
The 44th and 12th New York Infantry Monument is a Gettysburg Battlefield memorial erected near the summit of Little Round Top to commemorate combat in the Battle of Little Round Top. The castellated building is the largest monument to a regiment on the battlefield, is the 1st of only 2 Battle of Gettysburg memorials with observation decks (cf. 1910 The Pennsylvania State Memorial), and supplemented the Gettysburg Battlefield Memorial Association wooden towers on Big Round Top and East Cemetery Hill (replaced in 1895 with 2 observation towers at Big Round Top and at Culp's Hill). The July 3, 1893, memorial dedication was the site of an altercation against photographer William H. Tipton by Gen. Sickles, who was served a court writ the following day and was forced out of the New York Monuments Commission in 1912 after malfeasance.

  • Our grandkids call this the castle. Another great place to grab photos. A little dark inside to be able to read all the names.  more »
  • Need to get to Little Big Top to see the monument but well worth the short walk from parking. From here you can look out over the battlefield.  more »
