The soldiers of the United States Army's 4th Artillery Regiment played a crucial role in defeating General Robert E. Lee's Confederate Army forces at the Battle of Gettysburg, in Pennsylvania. The 4th Artillery received highest honors for their gallant, stubborn stand, including the first awarding of the new Congressional Medal of Honor. It was given to a Sergeant in "A" Battery, 4th Artillery, for his bravery at the "Fish Hook," on Cemetery Ridge.

Dr. Paul Olson, Provo, Utah, (the gentleman who commissioned the painting) was painted as the captain (up behind the "six pounder" howitzer). His father was painted as the gun chief (sergeant giving the fire command), and Paul's three brothers painted as the howitzer's firing crew. Paul's son and son-in-law (behind him) were portrayed as members of a "sharp shooter" regiment.
