Irish Brigade Monument - Father Corby Statue - Gettysburg, PA - Postcard, c. 1920s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique Miller Art Co. postcard published by David Blocher in the 1920s. It shows a view of the Irish Brigade Monument and Father Corby statue at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

"ERECTED IN MEMORY of Father Corby, Chaplain of the Irish Brigade. Just before the charge Father Corby mounted a rock affording a natural pulpit and pronounced a general absolution for the whole brigade. The command "Forward" immediately followed sacred words of the priest and the Irish Brigade at once rushed into the thickest of the fight. The Celtic cross is the Brigade's Memorial at the Loop.", reads the description printed on the back.

The postcard is unused and is in GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, light foxing on back side, small red ink scribble at left edge of the front side.
