Pomnik 2'nd Brigade

Pomnik 2'nd Brigade, umieszczony jest podobnie jak pomnik 58th przy Howard Avenue na północ od Gettysburga.
W czasie bitwy pod Gettysburgiem drugą brygadą dowodził pułkownik w. Krzyżanowski, co zostało odnotowane na pomniku.
W składzie drugiej brygady walczył pod Gettysburgiem jego macierzysty 58 pułk piechoty z Nowego Jorku.
