Brigadier General Gouverneur Kemble Warren (January 8, 1830 – August 8, 1882) was a civil engineer and Union Army general during the American Civil War.  He was Chief Engineer of the Union’s Army of the Potomac at the Battle of Gettysburg. His bronze statue stands atop the boulder on which he is said to have stood and surveyed the battlefield during the decisive battle of Little Round Top.  It was created by Karl Gerhardt (1853–1940) and dedicated in 1888.

Wow, that’s impressive – I don’t think I’ve ever seen a statue on a top of a mountain before! And what a great place to survey the surroundings. Sorry I’m so behind on commenting, just got back from a three week holiday and at the end of it the internet was down most of the time 😦 I hope all is well with you! xx
