This monument marks the position occupied by the Twentieth Massachusetts Infantry in line of battle July 2nd and 3rd 1863 until advanced to the front of the copse of trees on its immediate right to assist in repelling the charge of Longstreet's Corps.
This tablet is placed by their comrades in honor of Colonel Paul Joseph Revere, First Lieutenant Henry Ropes, Second Lieutenant Sumner Paine, and forty-one enlisted men who were killed or mortally wounded.

**************
This regiment was also known as the "Harvard Regiment" since so many of their officers had been educated there. This unusual monument of Roxbury puddingstone was dedicated in 1886.
