1. The 7th Indiana at Gettysburg
Colonel Ira G. Grover commanded this regiment of 437 men at the battle. On July 1, the regiment was guarding the supply wagons at Emmitsburg to the south. Acting without orders, Grover decided to move toward Gettysburg, arriving late in the afternoon. The regiment went into position on Culp's Hill with the rest of the division. Some sources say Col. Grover was later tried, but exonerated, for abandoning his post on July 1 at Emmitsburg when moving to the battle.
