This impressive sculpted face belongs to Colonel Eliakim Sherrill, 126th New York Infantry. It’s from a bronze panel on his regiment’s monument at Gettysburg. It’s online from Steve A. Hawks on Stone Sentinels.

Colonel Sherrill was wounded in the jaw and captured at Harpers Ferry in September 1862 and was in command of his brigade at Gettysburg. He was mortally wounded there on 3 July 1863 and died the next day.
