Does anyone know how many soldiers from the 11th NJ Infantry were killed at The Battle of Gettysburg? I also like to know if there is a list of soldiers from the 11th NJ Infantry, first/last names who were killed in action at the Battle of Gettysburg? Thanks.

Officially, the 11th New Jersey lost at Gettysburg:

3 officers and 14 men killed
9 officers and 115 men wounded
12 men missing

I would say that the difference between the 17 killed that I cite and the 31 that the monument uses includes those who were mortally wounded and were still alive when the official count was made in the immediate aftermath of the battle.
