Birthday Boy

I am pretty sure its not his birthday, but it is mine so hence the title.  The monument to the Twenty Sixth Pennsylvania Emergency Militia Infantry is on the west side of Gettysburg at the intersection of Chambersburg Street, West Street and Springs Avenue.   The tablet on the monument reads- Reached Gettysburg June 25 in advance of the Army of the Potomac. On the morning of June 26 marched out the Chambersburg Pike and met the rebel column at Marsh Creek and forced by overwhelming numbers to withdraw in the afternoon. On the Hunterstown Road had a severe engagement with the rebel cavalry inflicting upon them some loss. Reached Harrisburg June 28 having marched sixty consecutive hours and skirmished with the enemy. June 30 advanced from Harrisburg after the rebels in retreat. October 9, 2011
