1. Hazlett and Weed
Hazlett, commanding Battery D, 5th U.S. Artillery arrived on Little Round Top just minutes before the Confederates began assaulting the Federal position. As Federal infantry reinforced the position, one of the brigades arriving was commanded by Brig. Gen. Stephen Weed, a friend of Hazlett's. As the fighting intensified, Weed was mortally wounded by musket fire. As he leaned over to Weed, Hazlett was shot in the head. The incident apparently left a lasting impression on the veterans of the 91st Pennsylvania.
