Artist's Description

“This monument marks the position occupied by the 20th Massachusetts Infantry in line of battle on July 2, 1863, until (on July 3) it advanced to the front of the copse of trees at right to assist in repelling the charge of Longstreet’s corps. This tablet is placed by their comrades in honor of Colonel Paul Joseph Revere, First Lieutenant Henry Ropes, Second Lieutenant Sumner Paine and 41 enlisted men who were killed or mortally wounded.”

The puddingstone boulder was sent by rail from Roxbury (a section of Boston) to Gettysburg in 1886 by the Regimental Association. The bronze tablet was placed upon it and given by Mrs. Nathaniel Thayer of Boston, a daughter of Colonel Paul Revere, the third colonel of the Regiment and grandson of the Revolutionary War hero.
