General Gouverneur K. Warren’s hat. General Warren was one of the most important Generals at Gettysburg. On the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, July 2, 1863, Warren initiated the defense of Little Round Top, recognizing the importance of the undefended position on the left flank of the Union Army, and directing, on his own initiative, the brigade of Colonel Strong Vincent to occupy it just minutes before it was attacked. Warren suffered a minor neck wound during the Confederate assault. This hat was sold by the Warren family in the 1960’s and has been in a private collection ever since. This is the first time it has been publicly exhibited.
