The 5th Maine Battery Monument was dedicated on McKnight's (Stevens') Knoll in October of 1889. Among the veteran attendees was John Chase, known as the most wounded survivor from the war. Chase suffered 48 wounds including losing his right arm and left eye. Chase along with four of his comrades were photographed posng with their monument at the dedication ceremony. The top image shows Chase on the left with his four comrades and on the bottom is a rarely seen photograph of the same five individuals, again, Chase on the left, this time with the camera facing the opposite direction towards Cemetery Hill.
