remembers the valor and devotion of
her sons who served at Gettysburg

From near this spot the Texas Brigade
at about 1:30 P.M. on July 2 crossed
Emmitsburg Road and advanced with
Hood's Division across Plum Run toward
Little Round Top. The Texas Brigade
after severe fighting on the slopes
of Little Round Top retired to a
position on the south side of Devil's
Den. The Brigade held this position the
night of July 2 and during the day of
July 3, the Brigade then fell back to a
position near this memorial on the
evening of July 3 on the field at
Gettysburg. The Texas Brigade suffered
597 casualties.

1st Texas Inf, Lt.Col. P.A. Work, 4th

none was grander than Gettysburg.
