Description: Carte de visite of General Gouverneur K. Warren, who served with the Union Army during the Civil War. Warren, a native of Cold Spring, New York, is also known as the "Hero of Little Round Top." At Gettysburg, he realized the importance of the hill, and on his own initiative ordered Vincent's brigade, including the famous 20th Maine, to occupy it. The troops reached the summit of the hill minutes before the Confederates swept over it, and prevented the Union's left from being turned. Warren also fought at Fredericksburg, the Wilderness, Petersburg, and Appomattox Court House. View on Ohio Memory.
