His first combat as a newly-minted general took place here in York County PA on June 30, 1863, during the battle of Hanover. This was the day before the battle of Gettysburg.

Nice statue of the General in Monroe, Michigan. Well worth stopping by, if you're in the neighborhood.

I flew my small version of his personal flag on the 5th.

It is a nice statue. I went to school right across the street from there.
