  • This important monument commemorates the bold action by this Vermont brigade which marched out into the midst of Pickett's charge and enfiladed the confederates in two directions.

  • The statue shows General Stannard as he appeared after he lost his right arm later in the fighting around Petersburg, the last of three serious wounds he suffered in the Civil War. Stannard is holding his sword in his left hand, and his right sleeve is pinned up. It was debated whether to show Stannard as he was during the battle before he lost his arm, but it was thought fitting to display the sacrifice made by so many soldiers during the Civil War.
  • Finally I find the location of the Vermont Monument at Gettysburg, with General Stannard atop. I am so surprised that the state of Vermont has no recognition of this memorial on this website. I am so proud of the people of Vermont and the state's history , the state in which I was born and raised. Unfortunately, I have little sympathy for the state government which has a less than complete official registry of the state's many historical sites and monuments.
