Signals at Little Round Top

15 February 2020

This is a lithograph by Don Stivers called Signals at Little Round Top. It depicts Captain Peter A. Taylor, Captain James T. Hall, Sergeant John Chemberlin, and Sergeant Lucian H. Goodnaugh at Gettysburg.

Captain Taylor, of the 49th New York Infantry, was with the Army of the Potomac Signal Detachment on the Maryland Campaign of 1862 and wrote an after-action Report about his signal communications there. He continued in the Signal Corps to September 1865.

His photograph was published in J. Willard Brown’s The Signal Corps, U.S.A. in the War of the Rebellion (1896), which is online from the Signal Corps Association 1860-1865.
