Scarce photograph of the 1st Vermont Brigade Monument at Gettysburg. The monument was dedicated in October of 1889. I found a group photo on the internet of the dedication. I believe this was no doubtedly taken on that day, with just three men surrounding the monument. There are no photographer marks in the negative and the reverse is blank as well. Look at the fresh dirt around the monument. Also, the gentleman I bought the photo from told me this was dateable by the barbed-wire fence. It has a twist design which was seen in the 1880's. I have tried to search the web as to any clue to the identity of the men in the photograph. . Maybe someone with a Vermont book could add some supporting info about this photo.
Comprised of the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Six Infantry Regiments, the First Vermont Brigade was formed in the Fall of 1861 by native son General William F. "Baldy" Smith.  It became the only brigade in the Army of the Potomac to be known by its state. The "Old Brigade" earned a  hard fighting reputation at places like Savages Station, Salem Church, The Wilderness, Petersburg, and Cedar Creek. The regiments of the brigade mustered out after the completion of the war.
