Caption: Red Patch
Additional Description: In front of the McIntosh's Battalion Tablet is a post-war house known as "Red Patch." The house was the Gettysburg home of Maj. Gen. Charles H.T. Collis. Collis was the commander of the 119th Pennsylvania Infantry at Chancellorsville, but missed service at Gettysburg due to a wound. In later years, he established this summer cottage in Gettysburg, naming it after the Third Corps symbol (red diamond). The rooms of the house are named after Union generals.
