About the monument to the 110th Pennsylvania

The granite monument stands about thirteen and a half feet tall, with a life sized sculpture of an infantryman standing atop a pedastal. The soldier faces away from the front of the statue and toward where the regiment held Longstreet’s advancing Confederates for two hours on the afternoon of July 2. The diamond symbol of the Third Corps is on each face of the top of the pedastal, and the Seal of the State of Pennsylvania is on the front base.

The 110th Pennsylvania at Gettysburg

The 110th Pennsylvania was commanded at the Battle of Gettysburg by Lieutenant Colonel David M. Jones. He was wounded on July 2, losing his left leg, and Major Isaac Rodgers then took command. The 110th had only six companies at Gettysburg: A, B, C, E, H & I, and brought 152 men to the field. It lost 53 casualties.
