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.Work out when and for how long to visit 12th & 44th New York Infantry Monument and other Gettysburg attractions using our handy Gettysburg trip builder site.
