Karl Gerhardt's simple, but dignified signature on the base of the monument. Special thanks to Duane Rowe for this photo. He stands 6'3" and leaned over to get this close up, never getting on the boulder.________________(visitors are not allowed to stand on the large boulder where the monument stands. This is so noted by a bronze sign affixed to the front of the boulder.)
National Guard Soldiers at the Warren Monument c1910 2nd New York Cavalry Monument (dedicated September 19, 1892) bronze bas- relief by Karl Gerhardt located at Gettysburg.
Gerhardt's initials in the bronze of the 2nd New York Cavalry._________________________ Another of Gerhard't works at Gettysburg is the Vermont State Memorial. At the top of the monument is the bronze statue of General George Stannard. Gerhardt would use photos of General Stannard as he created the bronze statue. When Gerhardt had finished modeling the statue, a plaster cast was taken of the head and taken by Gerhardt to Burlington and shown to Mrs. Stannard and her daughters. They pronounced it an excellent portrait. The monument was dedicated on October 9, 1889.
