“Major Thomas Osborn’s Artillery” featuring LBG Mike Rupert

Early June 1863, Osborn was given the “unpleasant task” of getting the 11th Corp Artillery into good order after Chancellorsville. Arriving on the field north of Gettysburg midday on July 1, Osborn’s batteries will desperately hold until driven back through town and take a new position on West Cemetery Hill. Osborn’s command, bolstered by five batteries from the Artillery Reserve, fought there throughout July 2 & 3. On July 8, Osborn proudly wrote, “My command fights well.”  

Meeting Place: Near 61st Ohio monument on West Howard Ave, park in appropriate spots near General Barlow’s statue on East Howard Ave.  Please park on the right side of the road with all four wheels on the pavement.  The group will drive to East Cemetery Hill for the latter half of the presentation.  Park in the Gettysburg Tour Center lot. 

Cost is $35 – Registration is required no later than 24hrs in advance
