44th New York Infantry Monument
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Dedicated July 3, 1893. The largest regimental monument on the battlefield. The granite castle was built 44 feet high to represent the 44th NY Inf. and 12 feet square to represent two companies of the 12th NY Inf. Daniel Butterfield, regimental commander of the 12th Inf, 1st brigade commander of the 44th and army Chief of Staff at Gettysburg, designed it. There is a bronze plaque featuring reliefs of General Butterfield and General Francis Barlow inside the chamber, along with plaques containing a muster roll for each company of the regiment. A circular staircase leads to an observation deck. It is located on the summit of Little Round Top. (bio by: Helen L. Smith Hoke)
