Taking A Sunday Drive #28
This monument was the inspiration for the eternal flame on President John F. Kennedy's grave at Arlington National Cemetery.
The Maltese Cross, symbol of the 5th Corps tops the monument to the 91st Pennsylvania Volunteers.
The twenty-five and half foot tall monument is in the form of a castle tower. This monument is at the summit of Little Round Top.
Along the Avenue where all the Vermont memorials stand is this large evergreen tree.
If you have a personal connection to the Gettysburg Battlefield, it makes a trip there even more meaningful.
The one thing I regret not doing while in Pennsylvania was going to the area where a great-great-great grandfather on my mother's side of the family lived and is buried. I should have figured out ahead of our trip how near we would pass to Indian Head, PA, home of my branch of the Ridnour family. Next time??
