News-Antique.com - Apr 06,2010 - Just added to our website is a fantastic original Civil War cdv photograph of Union General Gouvenor K. Warren, known as The Hero of Little Round Top, at the battle of Gettysburg.
Gouvenor K. Warren graduated in the West Point class of 1850 ranking #2. His Civil War career started as Lieutenant Colonel, of the 5th New York Infantry, seeing action at the first land battle of the war, at Big Bethel, Va., on June 10, 1861. Promoted to brigade command, he was wounded at Gaines Mills, Va. during the 1862 Peninsular campaign, and later saw action with his brigade in the battles of 2nd Bull Run and Antietam. Appointed Chief Engineer of the Army of the Potomac in 1863, Warren's good eye and speedy action helped to save the vital position of Little Round Top at Gettysburg during the fighting on July 2, 1863. A statue of General Warren stands today on Little Round Top, where he forever looks out over the Valley of Death. After the wounding of General Winfield S. Hancock at Gettysburg, Warren took over command of the 2nd Corps until Hancock's return in March 1864, Warren then taking over command of the 5th Corps.
