1st Andrew Sharpshooters - Gettysburg
The 1st Andrew Sharpshooters monument stands on Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg. The Massachusetts men, in a unit named for their governor, would have employed the telescopic sight pictured on the monument. The monument carries the inscription "In God We Put Our Trust, But Kept Our Powder Dry." (Click image for larger view).
