3. 41st New York Infantry Position
Looking at the monument from the right flank marker, in the left foreground of this photo. The regiment arrived from Emmitsburg too late for the July 1 fighting north of Gettysburg. Upon arrival, the DeKalb Regiment was posted on the right flank of Von Gilsa's line, linking in to the 33rd Massachusetts.

4. 41st New York Left Flank
Looking at the monument from near the left flank marker (in the right foreground of this photo). As Avery's Confederate Brigade advanced in the evening of July 2, the 21st North Carolina hit the New Yorker's from the east. The 41st New York fared a little better than the other regiments of the Brigade, and was able to hold part of the position against the Confederate attack.
