Cabinet card photo of the monument raised in honor of the 73rd New York Infantry (2nd Fire Zouaves) marking their location of the field of battle at Gettysburg. This monument is located along Sickles Avenue. The plaque to the men of the 73rd reads “This monument was erected at the instance of the volunteer fireman of the City of New York represented by the figure on the left in grateful recognition of the services rendered by the Second Fire Zouaves on this field in defense of the Union July 2 1863.”. The regiment would suffer a 162 casualties during the battle. This example measures 5.5″ x 6.5″. The reverse of the card had an old period inscription which reads “Bronze statue of the Fireman soldier representing Colonel Ellsworth’s New York Zouaves who were all New York Fireman”. Some wear to the edges but otherwise a nice card.
