GETTYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Gettysburg battlefield monument damaged during the Halloween snowstorm of 2011 has been returned to its pedestal.

The life-size bronze infantry figure from the 121st New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment monument was damaged when a tree fell on it, bending the base.

Staff at the Gettysburg National Military Park removed the monument and pressed it back into shape.

A crane was used Tuesday to return the monument, which was also waxed and cleaned, to its pedestal along Sykes Avenue near the summit of Little Round Top.
