BIRNEY'S ZOUAVES - PAINTING OF THE REGIMENTAL MONUMENT AT GETTYSBURG
A wonderful original watercolor painting, 12" x 17", signed "M. L. G.", ca. 1920, a well-executed image of the monument to the 23rd Pennsylvania Regt., "Birney's Zouaves", on the battlefield at Gettysburg. The monument inscription reads: "The regiment was placed in reserve in rear of this position at 9:30 A.M. of the 3d. and subsequently five companies advanced into the breast-works. During the heavy cannonade it moved with the brigade to support the left center. Loss in the action. Two officers and twenty nine enlisted men killed and wounded. Birney's Zouaves. First Brigade, Third Division, Sixth Corps". Very good, in simple frame. This painting is nothing less than stunning, a superb piece of Gettysburg monument art. Not examined out of frame.
Estimate $ 500-700
