A painting by Rochesterian John William Wagner portrays a charge by the 149th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment that was crucial to preventing the Confederate Army from over-running Little Round Top at the Battle of Gettysburg.
Captain Milo Starks is shown at the bottom right; he took over the charge when Col. Patrick O’Rorke was killed in the action.
The picture was displayed at the May 10 dedication of a road marker honoring Capt. Milo Starks, a former town of Sweden resident.
This new road sign was unveiled May 10 during dedication ceremonies organized by Bill Andrews, a member of the Sweden Bicentennial Committee. It was installed just north of Captain Starks’ former home at 5139 South Lake Road (Route 19).
