Up Close With Some of Gettysburg's Granite and Bronze Soldiers

It was a beautiful Fall day here in Gettysburg, so I headed out to the battlefield armed with my Traveller Digital Camera and snapped a few up close shots of some of the battlefield's granite and bronze soldiers. . .
* * * * * * * * * *
Two views of the 40th New York ("Mozart Regiment") Monument in the Plum Run Valley. I always liked this monument as it is somewhat "hidden" from plain view. . .
* * * * * * * * * *
Hampton's Battery. . .in the Peach Orchard
* * * * * * * * * *
The 118th Pennsylvania ("Corn Exchange") Monument near Stony Hill. . .
* * * * * * * * * *
This monument to the 140th Pennsylvania is among the most unique at Gettysburg, or at any National Battlefield for that matter. . .it depicts a young soldier killed in action.
* * * * * * * * * *
Massachusetts Sharpshooters' Monument
* * * * * * * * * *
This soldier of the 23rd Pennsylvania ("Birney's Zoauves") is ready for action. . .
* * * * * * * * * *
The recently dedicated monument of General John White Geary on Culp's Hill
* * * * * * * * * *

Two shots of the 78th/102nd New York Monument on Culp's Hill. . .

* * * * * * * * * *

The 13th New Jersey Infantry Monument
* * * * * * * * * *

And, of course, I couldn't leave the battlefield today without first visiting the monument dedicated to the 96th PA Infantry, from my native Schuylkill County. . .
