Union 16th Michigan Flagbearer with National Colors

On 2 July, Colonel Strong Vincent’s brigade was intercepted by a staff officer desperately seeking men to cover the vital position of Little Round Top. Acting on his own discretion Vincent dispatched the brigade to the unprotected ground. His brigade was in place just moments prior to the intense, determined, and violent Confederate attack. At the far right of the line the Michiganders were savaged by the 4th and 5th Texas. When part of the 16th Michigan began to fall back under heavy pressure, Vincent mounted a boulder to rally them, shouting, “Don’t give an inch!” The wavering line coalesced but Vincent was felled by a Minié ball which tore through his thigh. He was moved to a nearby farm where he died five days later.
