Looking at the monument from a few steps to the west. The 134th New York was initially posted in what is today the National Cemetery across Baltimore Pike. As the Confederates attacked East Cemetery Hill in the evening of July 2, the regiment moved with the brigade to a position here to reinforce the pressed Federal forces.
