Private Joseph Lindemuth, Company L, 1st Pennsylvania Cavalry

Private Joseph Lindemuth, Company L, 1st Pennsylvania Cavalry – fully equipped & down on one knee served as the model for his units monument at Gettysburg. Located on Hancock Avenue at the Angle during Pickett’s Charge on July 3rd, the memorial to these men was dedicated on September 2, 1890 & cost $1,500.00.

In position behind the crest of Cemetery Ridge, the 1st PA. Cavalry was held in reserve to be on hand to attack any confederate infantry that was able to break through the union front. The Confederate assault faltered at the wall & these troopers were not needed that day. The dedicated, watchful appearance that Private Lindemuth conveys on this memorial represents the anxious wait of his fellow troopers as they witnessed the struggle unfold in front of them.

    Thank you.

      If you are looking for a private tour with a Licensed Battlefield Guide to drive your 9 person van with 4 adults this is not something that we do. You can obtain a Licensed Battlefield Guide from the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center (www.gettysburgfoundation.org) or by calling (877) 874-2478. We actually do 2 hour battlefield tour by bus. If you have any other questions they can be directed to info@gburgtours.com
