Union 38th Pennsylvania Reserve Flagbearer with State Colors

The monument honoring the 38th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment is at the south base of Little Round Top, Gettysburg. Also known as the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves, they were organized in July of 1861 in Pittsburgh and notably saw action at the Battles of South Mountain, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. They also participated in the famed debacle, the “Mud March,” General Ambrose Burnside’s second attempt to cross the Rappahannock River. The campaign was doomed by severe winter storms and dissension among the Union generals. Worse yet, Confederate General Robert E. Lee had already placed his army on the opposing shore of the swollen river waiting for the Union troops to effect a crossing. At the Battle of Gettysburg they arrived on the field with 377 officers and men and held their position until the close of the battle with a loss of only five wounded.
