First Long Island - Culp's Hill, Gettysburg

The First Long Island (67th New York) Infantry monument stands on Culp's Hill, scene of fierce fighting at Gettysburg. The New Yorkers were fortunate in this battle, however, being ordered in after the heavy fighting had passed and suffering light casualties compared to others in the sector.
