Almost 5,800 men from Massachusetts fought in the Battle of Gettysburg. They were organized into eighteen infantry and one cavalry regiments, two companies of sharpshooters, and four batteries of light artillery. Each of the 25 units has its own monument on the battlefield. Around 1,540 Massachusetts men – 26% – became casualties at Gettysburg, the third highest total of the eighteen Union states that fought there. (see the States at Gettysburg)
